PSV have retained the Dutch league title on the final day as rivals Ajax slipped up.

Ajax Amsterdam went into the game with a goal difference lead of six at the top of the Eredivisie, but Frank De Boer's team could only draw 1-1 at second from bottom De Graafschap.

Meanwhile, last season's champions PSV took full points from their clash away at PEC Zwolle, triumphing 3-1 to win the title by two points.

It's PSV's 23rd Eredivisie title, whereas Ajax would have won their 34th.

The other member of the Netherlands' Big Three, Feyenoord, finished third, 21 points behind PSV.
