A string of A-list stars including Lionel Messi, Thierry Henry and John Terry partied together at Cesc Fabregas’ post-wedding party in Ibiza on Tuesday night.
Chelsea star Fabregas tied the knot with Daniella Semaan in May, however the couple waited until the height of summer – and after the league season and World Cup – to hold their celebratory bash.
It took place on the Balearic island and was the perfect place for any football fan hoping to catch a glimpse of some of the game’s biggest names.

They included several team-mates of Fabregas at his current club Chelsea; Ross Barkley, Ethan Ampadu, Marcos Alonso and N’Golo Kante among them.
Kante especially stood out for his sartorial choice, which took the apparent smart-casual dress code to another level – but on the casual side.
The France midfielder wore an untucked white shirt, shorts and white trainers – although having just won the World Cup, many would argue he can dress as he chooses.

Former Chelsea captain John Terry also attended with his wife Toni, taking a break with friends away from rumours which continue to circulate regarding his retirement from playing after leaving Aston Villa.
There were other big names from Fabregas’s days at Barcelona, where he played for the youth team as well as for the senior side between spells at Arsenal and Chelsea.
Lionel Messi was the most notable name, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner appearing with his arm around wife Antonella Roccuzzo.
Sergio Busquets and Carles Puyol were also among the Barca legends past and present who walked the red carpet.

There were also reminders of Fabregas’s youthful days as a Gunner, with former goalkeeper Jens Lehmann and the club’s all-time top scorer Thierry Henry in attendance at the party.
Henry, like Terry, was taking a break from Villa-related rumours amid talks he is on the verge of replacing Steve Bruce as manager following a takeover at the Championship club.
Fabregas and Semaan were of course the stars of the show, both wearing striking, jewelled, white outfits as they kissed for the cameras.
The couple were joined by four of their five children, Leonardo, Lia, Capri and Joseph, for pictures – the eldest, Maria, was the only one not in the snaps.
Lebanese-born Semaan, 43, is 12 years older than her new husband, but that has not stopped romance blossoming and Fabregas proposed in December 2017.
