Argentine football star Lionel Messi has married his childhood sweetheart in his hometown in what has been called the “wedding of the century”.

A civil ceremony for Messi, 30, and Antonela Roccuzzo, 29, was held at a luxury hotel in the city of Rosario.

Football stars and celebrities were among the 260 guests, with hundreds of police deployed for the event.
