Montpellier chief leads celebrations

Thousands of fans gathered on Montpellier’s Place de la Comedie in light rain to cheer the team, who paraded on a double-decker bus painted in the team’s colours of orange and blue.

Nicollin, a 68-year-old businessman and one of the most colourful characters in French football, also had his hair dyed in the same colours.

As Montpellier, a family-run club still in Ligue 2 three years ago, savoured their success, the inquest continued into the crowd trouble that marred their final game of the season on Sunday.
