Payet in tears after taken off midway into Europa Cup final

LYON, France: Marseille captain Dimitri Payet was in tears after he was taken off injured in the first half of Wednesday's Europa League final against Atletico Madrid.

Payet was seen comforted by his team-mates as he came off to be replaced by Maxime Lopez in the 32nd minute of the game, with his side trailing 1-0 at the time to Antoine Griezmann's goal.

Payet had been considered a doubt coming into the match with a hamstring problem that prevented him from playing in Marseille's last league game against Guingamp last Friday.
