PSG chief Nasser Al-Khelaifi said: "We understand, respect and support the decisions taken by the French Government to end the championship. Health, as the government has always said, must be everyone's priority.

"In these difficult times, I hope that this trophy will bring a little happiness and hope to all our supporters, and I am grateful to them for their unwavering support which helps drive Paris St-Germain forward."

On the flip side, Amiens and Toulouse have been relegated. "There might be appeals but our decisions are solid," said Didier Quillot, the chief executive of the French League (LFP).
