Childhood sweethearts Lionel Messi and Antonella Roccuzzo have tied the knot in a glamorous ceremony in Rosario on Friday night
The pair shared a passionate kiss for the cameras after marrying as the newlyweds lovingly embraced out on the red carpet.
Messi looked besotted with his new bride as they held hands while walking out of the Rosario City Center complex after the star-studded wedding.
Around 250 guests including Messi’s former team-mates at the Nou Camp; Xavi, Carles Puyol, Cesc Fabregas and Samuel Eto’o, were all photographed earlier arriving for the glitzy marriage ceremony.
His current strike partner at Barcelona, Uruguay forward Luis Suarez flashed a huge grin to the camera as he expressed his joy at his team-mate’s marriage.
Another Barcelona team-mate Jordi Alba, looked similarly delighted for Messi while midfielder Sergio Busquets made an appearance for the bash.
Messi’s team-mate for both club and country, Javier Mascherano, also showed up joined by PSG and Argentina winger Angel Di Maria.
The wedding took place at the impressive City Center Rosario complex, which Messi has rented out as he prepares to tie the knot in style.
The vast complex includes the 188-room Pullman Hotel where the majority of guests will be staying – the five star hotel’s rates start from around £100 a night.
Five-time Ballon d’Or winner Messi enjoyed another incredible season for Barcelona in 2016-17 as he netted 54 times in 52 appearances for the Catalan giants.
Messi, who turned 30 last week, missed out on two major pieces of silverware however as Barcelona finished runners-up to rivals Real Madrid in La Liga.
They were also dumped out of the Champions League at the quarter-final stage, by finalists Juventus, though they did win the Copa del Rey after beating newly-promoted Alaves 3-1 in the final.
