The French Ligue 1 match between Nice and Olympique Marseille was abandoned after fans stormed the pitch. Marseille forward Dmitri Payet was hit by a bottle as he went to take a corner and he threw it back at the Nice fans. The fans charged on to the pitch and the match, which Nice were leading 1-0, was halted. Nice players came out again after a long delay but Marseille, who reportedly had several players injured in the melee, refused to come back out and the game had to be abandoned. Marseille president Pablo Longoria said: "Our players were attacked. We decided for the safety of our players, who were attacked during the pitch invasion, not to resume the match because the safety of our players was not guaranteed."
