Paris Saint-Germain have been crowned Ligue 1 champions following the cancellation of the 2019-20 season due to coronavirus.

Earlier this month, the LFP (Ligue de Football Professionnel) outlined plans to restart the campaign in June with lockdown measures in France set to be lifted on May 11.

However, French prime minister Edouard Philippe insisted that such a scenario was impossible during a national assembly on Tuesday (April 28), while revealing that no sporting events will be allowed to take place until September at the earliest.

The announcement left several teams in Ligue 1 awaiting their fates regarding final positions, with PSG sitting 12 points clear at the top of the table having played a game less than second-placed Marseille.

Following a vote over how the league standings should be decided, the LFP confirmed on Thursday that Thomas Tuchel’s men are champions of France for a third successive year.
