Inter Milan thrash Udinese and celebrate winning Serie A – in pictures

Party time at the San Siro as Conte's side secure 5-1 victory

Inter Milan celebrated winning the Serie A title by thrashing Udinese 5-1 at the San Siro on Sunday.

The game was watched by 1,000 fans inside the 75,000-seater stadium for the first time in a campaign played behind closed doors because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Thousands more gathered outside the ground, carrying flags and setting off flares to celebrate Inter’s first title in 11 years.

Former Manchester United midfielder Ashley Young opened the scoring with his first goal of the season after eight minutes following a one-two with Lautaro Martinez.

The 35-year-old also won the Premier League with United in 2013 and is the third English player to win the title in Italy after Jimmy Greaves and Gerry Hitchens with Inter in the 1960s.

Christian Eriksen, another former Premier League player with Tottenham Hotspur, came off the bench and scored with a free-kick just before the break.

Martinez marked his 100th Serie A appearance with the third goal from the penalty spot ten minutes after the break following a foul on Achraf Hakimi.

Further goals from Ivan Perisic and Romelu Lukaku added to the party atmosphere, before Roberto Pereyra netted a late consolation penalty for Udinese.
