Football star Messi marries his childhood sweetheart
At a private ceremony on Friday at his Argentine hometown of Rosario, which was attended by footballers and celebrities, Lionel Messi said "I do" to his chilhood sweetheart and mother of two Antonella Roccuzzo.

After the ceremony, the couple walked the red carpet before hundreds of gathered journalists at a hotel and casino complex. Ruccuzzo donned a tight-fitting mermaid-style gown by Spanish designer Rosa Clara.

In the ceremony which was attended by around 260 guests, the couple's children Thiago (4) and Mateo (1) were seen sitting in the front row. The guests included Shakira and her husband and Messi's teammate Gerard Pique along with footballers Neymar and Luis Suarez.

The Argentine media has called it the "wedding of the century" for the northern port city of Rosario, where Messi (30) had met Roccuzzo (29) while he was a nine-year-old boy.

The party was held at 2200 GMT on Friday in the City Center casino.

Both Messi and Roccuzzo live in Barcelona but often return to Rosario for vacations. The couple has asked for donations to a children's charity instead of wedding presents.
