Football: Ajax crushed 5-1 by Zwolle in trouble-hit Dutch Cup final

Ajax suffered a 5-1 humiliation in Sunday's Dutch Cup final at the hands of unheralded Zwolle with the match held up when angry fans of the Amsterdam giants pelted the pitch with smoke-bombs and fireworks. PEC Zwolle, based 120km to the north-east of Amsterdam, were a goal down after just three minutes before sprinting into a 4-1 lead at the break on their way to their first Dutch Cup triumph. But the game was twice held up -- including for half an hour just after the start -- when Ajax fans hurled flares on to the pitch and play was delayed to allow smoke to clear.
