Lille fans ran on to the pitch and attacked their own players during Saturday's 1-1 draw with Montpellier.

TV footage showed supporters surging towards the Lille players and aiming kicks at some of them after the final whistle of the Ligue 1 match.

French League officials have confirmed they will investigate the incidents at Lille's Pierre-Mauroy stadium.

Lille, who won the last of their three Ligue 1 titles in 2011, are one place off the bottom of the table.

"The LFP firmly condemns the incidents that occurred after the Lille v Montpellier game," the League said in a statement.

"As soon as Thursday, the disciplinary commission will look into these incidents."
