Stars from across the sporting world wished supporters a Merry Christmas and shared photos from their celebrations with loved ones.
With no major sport scheduled on Christmas Day, the majority of athletes were granted the day off to spend with family.

The PSG forward and World Cup Golden Boot winner posted a photo of himself with his younger brother Ethan Mbappe, who has been receiving rave views after highlights of him in action for PSG’s youth team went viral.
Former Liverpool star Luis Suarez shared a snap with his family with the caption: ‘Muy feliz Navidad para todos!’, which translates to ‘a very Merry Christmas to all!’
Arsenal striker Gabriel Jesus also posted a photo of him with his family, as many of them wore matching pyjamas and he said: ‘Feliz Natal a todos,’ meaning ‘Merry Christmas everyone.’
Real Madrid and World Cup stars Vinicius Jr. and Luka Modric also shared festive-looking snaps with their families, with Modric enjoying some time off in the Maldives following his exploits at the World Cup.
World Cup winner Lionel Messi’s wife shared a photo of the Messi family and wished everyone ‘Merry Christmas’ as they posed by their Christmas tree back home in Argentina.
Jesse Lingard also shared a snap of him sporting a rather extravagant ginger wig, with his daughter sitting on his lap, as the Nottingham Forest star shared a series of photos of them together.
