11:01 am on 3 May 2012

Ajax Amsterdam have been confirmed champions of the Dutch football league after remarkably coming back from being sixth in the league at one stage.

Ajax striker Siem de Jong scored both goals as they won two-nil at home against lowly V.V.V. Venlo.

Earlier in the season Ajax were sixth and trailed PSV Eindhoven by eleven points after twenty games.

Ajax put together a run of thirteen straight wins and lifted their thirty-first championship with a match to spare.
