AC Milan are Italian football champions for the first time since the 2010/2011 season.

In a long-distance duel with city rivals Inter, Milan celebrated a 3-0 (3-0) away win against eleventh-placed US Sassuolo.

Inter Milan, who started the last matchday two points behind, also won 3-0 (0-0) against Sampdoria.

A brace from Olivier Giroud (17', 32') and a goal from Franck Kessié (36') made Milan's Scudetto perfect.

Rafael Leão prepared all three goals.

A header hit by substitute Zlatan Ibrahimovic in what was possibly his last professional game was disallowed after video evidence.

Milan secured their 19th league title and drew level with Inter;

Record champion is Juventus (36).

Last year, Inter Milan ended Juventus' nine-year title streak.
