Lyon's Ligue 1 match at Marseille has been abandoned after the team's bus was attacked.

Lyon manager Fabio Grosso suffered a head injury as the team bus came under attack from fans throwing projectiles before the match.

French football's governing body, the Ligue de Football Professionnel, confirmed the match, which had been due to kick off at 1945GMT, was off after an emergency meeting.

Its statement read: "During the crisis unit meeting following the incidents that occurred outside the Stade Velodrome on the route of its bus, Olympique Lyonnais made known its opposition to taking part in the match given the circumstances.

"In consultation with Olympique de Marseille and the public authorities, the OM-OL match will therefore not be played this evening at 8.45pm.

"It will now be up to the Competitions Commission to decide on the fate of this match by application of article 544 of the competition regulations."
