Sports stars spread holiday cheers
Lionel Messi was in full-fledged holiday spirit while in his hometown of Rosario. Anontela Rocuzzo, his wife, shared photographs of the family on Instagram with their children Thiago, Mateo and Ciro. "We wish you a Christmas filled with light and love. Merry Christmas," she wrote.
Diego Maradona simply could not wait for Christmas eve. A week prior to Christmas Eve, the Argentine posted a picture of himself with the Christmas tree and captioned the photo: “Christmas Eve is coming, Christmas is coming.”
Kylian Mbappe dressed up as Santa three days ahead of Christmas. Given his talent, he does bring gifts for his club PSG.
Real Madrid president Florentino Perez did not miss out on celebrations during the Christmas break. He was seen alongside coach Zindine Zidane, captain Sergio Ramos and Brazilian full back Marcelo.
Sachin Tendulkar appeared to be Santa's helper himself as he wished his followers a Merry Christmas. “Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas. May this Christmas bring lots of happiness to our hearts and homes. I hope you have a wonderful time with family and friends,” he wrote on Twitter.
Unlike the other stars, New Zealand’s Ross Taylor was not celebrating Christmas at home. Rather he was at the MCG preparing for the Boxing Day Test against Australia at Melbourne tomorrow.
