Football star Lionel Messi has married his childhood sweetheart, Antonella Roccuzzo in a lavish wedding in Argentina.
Over 250 guests including football’s biggest names were present at the exotic hotel complex where they were joined as a couple.
The wedding was held at 2200 GMT in the City Center casino, which stands right next to a crime-ridden slum run by drug gangs.
It was reported that the couple banned mobile phones at the event while the staff were sworn to secrecy and 450 police officers were deployed.
Some of the sportsmen who attended include Samuel Eto’o, Sergio Agueri, Cesc Fabregas, Ezequiel Lavezzi and Neymar.
Women guests were reportedly encouraged to bring three dresses to avoid clashes or repeats of clothes, or even colours and textures, while male guests were told to take three different types of shirts.
