Mamelodi Sundowns had their DStv Premiership coronation postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.
The Brazilians were set to receive the trophy following the clash with Royal AM at the Chatsworth Stadium on Saturday afternoon but rain over Friday night and Saturday meant that the pitch was in no condition to host a fixture despite the best efforts of all involved.
The game had kicked off as scheduled but after 24 minutes played it was clear that the players were at risk and the referee pulled them off.
The groundsman attempted to sweep off excess water to get the game back under way, but the rain continued.
The league will announce a new date in due course.
