The match between Marseille and Lyon has been called off after Dimitri Payet was struck by a bottle.

In the fourth minute of the game, Payet was injured by a projectile from the crowd while taking a corner.

In protest, the OM players marched off the field and back down the tunnel.

The play was subsequently adjourned due to confusion while Ligue 1 authorities and the referee debated whether or not to continue.

The game was given the green light by the referee and the league, but neither team's players emerged from their locker rooms.

And, after an hour of speculation, the match has finally been called off.
