Local officials call off a Ligue 1 match between Marseille and Lyon due to strong winds in the south of France.

A showpiece Ligue 1 encounter between Marseille and Lyon has been postponed due to dangerously high winds sweeping the south of France.

Marseille were due to host Remi Garde's side at the Stade Velodrome, but local officials called the match off because they deemed conditions to be hazardous.

A statement on the home club's official website read: "The Departmental Security Committee met at 14:00 at the Stade Velodrome.

"They issued an unfavourable opinion because of the climatic conditions in the Marseille region."

A new date for the match has yet to be decided, with an option to play the game within 24 hours not available due to midweek cup commitments.
