Mamelodi Sundowns have been crowned Premier Soccer League (PSL) champions for the ninth time bringing a fitting conclusion to what has been an exciting and drama filled campaign.

However, it was Sundowns who were not going to be pipped to the post as they claimed a narrow 1-0 win over Stars, a result which had devastating consequences for the latter.
