The most eligible bachelor of the century, Lionel Messi finally tied the knot with his childhood sweetheart Antonella Roccuzzo on Friday night in their hometown Rosario, Argentina.

A ceremony for Messi, 30 and Roccuzzo, 29 was held at a luxury hotel in Rosario which saw about 250 friends and family in attendance. The star studded wedding reception saw the likes of some of Messi’s Barcelona teammates Neymar, Luis Suarez, Gerrad Pique and his pop star wife Shakira and many of his former team mates including Xavi Hernandez, Cesc Fabregas and Carlos Puyol.

The much talked about Messi’s awkward kiss after being pronounced man and wife has been doing its rounds on the social media. While Messi leaned in for a long kiss, Roccuzzo got away with a little peck. However, Messi tried to ease the awkward moment by rubbing son Thiago’s head who was right by the couple’s side.

Although mobile phones were banned at the wedding ceremony, there were still a few on hand to capture the couple dancing the night away with their friends and family. The party continued late into the night and saw some dodgy dance moves by Messi. But nonetheless the couple seemed to enjoy the occasion, which was long time pending.
