PARIS (Reuters) - France's antitrust authority will issue a decision following an investigation into Google's advertising business on June 7, a spokesman for the watchdog said on Thursday.

Las week, the Wall Street Journal reported that Alphabet's Google was close to settling an antitrust investigation in France over allegations it abused its power in online advertising.

The report said the company was expected to pay a fine and institute operational changes.
