From footballers in fancy dress to NFL stars in Christmas suits, let’s raise a toast to the world’s most festive sport stars.
Green Bay Packers
This year, Celtic have delivered a erm, ‘heartwarming’ Christmas tale, in which Brendan Rodgers and co. personally transport fans to the club shop.
Includes close-ups of Mr. Rodgers’ autobiography.
Manchester City W.F.C.
Look at the absolute unbridled joy here on Izzy Christiansen’s face. Although, why she didn’t read the #Sharkettes Christmas jumper memo is beyond us.
Yoda, Toy Story’s Woody and Liam Gallagher. It could only be Leicester City on their annual Christmas shindig.
Don’t forget that when they did the same two years ago (that time visiting Copenhagen), they went on to be crowned Premier League champions…
Could this be a lucky tradition? Dress up in Scandinavia and claim the title? Are they about to go on an amazing run and usurp Manchester City from the top of the table? We’ll have to wait and see…
If there’s any footballer out there who has the build, the strength and the power to carry out Father Christmas’s duties, it’s Adebayo Akinfenwa.
Or as he calls himself, Father Beast Mode.
Harry Kane & Josh Onomah
If by chance you’ve been to a six-year-old’s school nativity play this year, then you have probably witnessed a more convincing performance than this outing in 2016 by Spurs players Harry Kane and Josh Onomah (now on loan at Aston Villa). Here they were, giving their all, to promote a ‘small business Saturday’ event.
‘Tis the season to be jolly, lads…
Not everyone is pleased to see Father Christmas. Heavyweight boxer David Haye squared off against the big man in the ring.
Don’t forget, he does have nine reindeer backing him up, David.
