David Beckham's Paris St-Germain clinch French title

There may be continuing uncertainty over their coach Carlo Ancelotti's future, but what is beyond doubt is that Paris St-Germain are Ligue 1 champions.
They sealed a first French league title in 19 years thanks to a solitary Jeremy Menez goal at Lyon, a fine 53rd-minute finish from Thiago Motta's pass.
David Beckham got in on the act as a late substitute for Menez, and became the first English player to win a championship in four different countries (England, Spain, USA and France).
Despite the absence of the suspended trio of Thiago Silva, Salvatore Sirigu and Marco Verratti, it was fairly comfortable for PSG against the youthful Champions League chasers.
"We deserved it," a delighted Ancelotti told French television on the pitch after the game, as his players celebrated.
Lyon's defeat means Marseille - 2-1 winners over Toulouse on Saturday - qualify directly for the Champions League group stages and that Lille, Nice or St Etienne could yet steal third spot from them
