Paris Saint-Germain director of football Leonardo has been rushed to hospital after collapsing, according to reports in France.

The former Brazil international was taken to the American Hospital in Neuilly-sur-Seine after celebrating the club's Ligue 1 title win, Le Parisien have claimed.

Carlo Ancelotti's team clinched their first league championship success since 1994 with a 1-0 win over Lyon at the Stade de Gerland on Sunday.

Leonardo was filmed arguing with star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the changing rooms afterwards, reportedly over his request that the Swede take a routine drug test.

The 43-year-old could yet face sanctions for allegedly pushing a referee after PSG had drawn with Valenciennes earlier this month, a game in which defender Thiago Silva was red carded for a similar offence.
