Messi’s colour­ful wed­ding

The Herald (Zimbabwe) - - Sport -

ROSARIO . — Foot­ball and show­biz stars gather in north­ern Ar­gentina to­day for Latin Amer­ica’s celebrity wed­ding bash of the decade when Barcelona su­per­star Lionel Messi mar­ries his child­hood sweet­heart An­tonella Roc­cuzzo.

Pop star Shakira and her hus­band, Messi’s team­mate Ger­ard Pique, are ex­pected among the 260 guests, ac­cord­ing to me­dia and lo­cals close to the event.

They will join old friends of the cou­ple and foot­ballers such as his Barcelona strike part­ners Luis Suarez and Ney­mar.

The party at a casino in his home­town Rosario will be a respite for the player from his le­gal woes. A Span­ish court last month re­jected his ap­peal against a con­vic­tion for tax fraud.

Brunette bride Roc­cuzzo (29) will wear a dress by Span­ish de­signer Rosa Clara, which has been flown over from Barcelona. — AFP.
