Soccer ace impresses wedding guests and Internet as a whole with his two-step

Messi is well able to hold his own on a football pitch, but did you know he was also more than capable of cutting a rug when the time came for it?

The Barca star, who married his childhood sweetheart Antonella Roccuzzo in his home town of Rosario in Argentina on Saturday, showed his moves on the dance floor were nearly as impressive as those on the pitch when he was filmed letting loose with his new wife as guests partied around them.

In the video the striker is seen twirling his bride and enjoying the attention from guests who cheered along as soon as they spotted the cool couple.


Groom Messi seemed to be really getting into the swing of things, as he is seen without his Armani suit jacket from his wedding suit, however bride Antonella still remains a picture of perfection in her gorgeous Rosa Clara gown.

Fans and journalists were treated to a full red carpeted event on the big day, with the couple and their guests posing for pictures in their glamorous getups.

Barcelona teammates Neymar, Luis Suarez and Sergio Busquets were in attendance on the day, as were former Barca players Xavi Hernandez, Jordi Alba were, Carles Puyol and Argentina striker Sergio Aguero.

Chelsea's Cesc Fabregas was also spotted at the celebrations as was Gerard Pique, who was joined by his wife, Colombian pop star Shakira.

Guests of the lavish City Centre Rosario, a huge complex in Messi's home town of Rosario in the Santa Fe province, played tennis on the courts and were also given access to the huge casino on the grounds.

Security was tight on the day, as 450 police officers were drafted into the area.

The bride wore a stunning Rosa Clara gown which was reportedly flown by private jet from Spain, while husband Messi cut a handsome figure in an Armani suit which was said to be designed by Argentinian designer Claudio Cosano.

Well wishes poured in from the world of soccer with the likes of fellow Ballon d'Or winner, Brazil and Barcelona legend Ronaldinho, who took to social media to congratulate the happy couple.
