Toulon's former England international Delon Armitage will miss May's European Champions Cup final against Clermont Auvergne after fracturing his hand.

The 31-year-old, who joined the French side from London Irish in 2012, sustained the injury in the semi-final win over Leinster on Sunday.

He will be out for up to four weeks, Toulon boss Bernard Laporte said.

Toulon are seeking a hat-trick of European titles after winning the last two editions of the old Heineken Cup.

The final is being played at Twickenham on 2 May.
