Play has been suspended in French capital, Paris, after Istanbul Basaksehir and Paris St. Germain (PSG) players left the pitch.

They were protesting against an alleged racist language used by the fourth official, Sebastian Coltescu from Romania, towards Basaksehir’s Assistant Manager Pierre Webo.

Former Chelsea striker Demba Ba accused the fourth official of making a racist remark. Before the incident, Webo had been sent off.

Istanbul Basaksehir players led a walkout from the pitch, prompting officials to officially suspend the crucial Group H match.
