Paris Saint-Germain have been awarded the Ligue 1 title after the season was ended amid the coronavirus pandemic
Paris Saint-Garmain were crowned champions by the French Professional Football League (LFP) on Thursday, two days after French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe suspended sporting events in the country until at least September.
The French giant, who have now won their seventh French title [Ligue 1] in the last eight years, held a 12-point lead over second-placed Marseille when the season was suspended in March following the outbreak of the Coronavirus.

Following the decision, Marseille have now qualified directly into the Champions League group stages, while third-placed Rennes will enter the qualifying rounds, with Toulouse and Amiens relegated.
