Paris St Germain won their first Ligue 1 title in 19 years following a 1-0 win at Lyon, with David Beckham on the pitch to join in the celebrations.

Jérémy Ménez's 53rd-minute strike was enough to end the capital club's long wait to reclaim the French crown and seal a first title since their big-spending Qatari owners took charge.

PSG's title will not, however, be confirmed until a league disciplinary panel meets to decide whether to impose a points deduction following allegations sporting director Leonardo barged a referee.

Beckham celebrates another title win

The Brazilian will front a hearing before the end of the season after he was charged for an incident that took place in the tunnel after PSG's 1-1 draw with Valenciennes at the Parc des Princes last weekend.

Reports have suggested PSG could be handed a two-point ban, with the club now seven points clear of nearest-rivals Marseille with two games to play.

Leonardo was handed a preliminary sanction in midweek which prevented him from joining the PSG staff on the touchline or in the dressing room at Stade Gerland tonight.
