Chan Yuen-ting has become the first woman to lead a professional men's football team to a top-flight title.

The 27-year-old's Eastern side were crowned Hong Kong Premier League champions courtesy of a 2-1 win over South China on Friday.

Chan, who took over from Yeung Ching-kwong in December with Eastern one point clear at the top of the table, has lost only once in 15 matches.

Eastern won the title - their first in 21 years - with one game still to play.
