In a massive group wedding in China, 688 couples were married in total, with one couple standing out from the rest. In this particular marriage, the groom wore a Cristiano Ronaldo jersey while the bride wore a Lionel Messi jersey.
This is easily riskier and more forbidden than Romeo and Juliet’s relationship. These two lovebirds have crossed all kinds of cultural and geographical lines and are putting their true Real Madrid and Barcelona fandom to the test.
Here’s hoping they can keep their marriage intact after the next El Clasico.

Lionel Messi shared a rare glimpse into his family life on Facebook, posting this photo of himself with his son Thiago and girlfriend Antonella Roccuzzo.
Since Messi won’t be traveling with Barcelona to face Real Zaragoza — an effort by Barca to rest their first-choice players ahead of a grueling end to the season — the superstar spent time relaxing by the beach with his lovely family.
One thing is certain: that kid is a spitting image of his dad already. What remains to be seen (and it’ll be a while until we know) is if Thiago got his daddy’s soccer skills along with his looks.
Leave it to the always-creative Japanese to put together a quirky game show challenging Lionel Messi to penalty kicks against a laser-guided, lightning-quick robot goalkeeper.
As you would expect from the best player of all time, Messi got the better end of the challenge, but not before the robot denied the Argentinian’s first couple attempts of! Check it out.

A small silver lining in a potentially (very) gloomy day for Lionel Messi fans. Before Messi left the match vs PSG at halftime with a hamstring injury, he scored his 8th goal of the UCL campaign and became the first player ever to score a Champions League goal in 20 different cities. The image above shows the cities he’s scored in, with the most coming from his home city of Barcelona.
Messi has also now scored 10 goals in the Champions League quarterfinals, equaling Raul, but we will have to wait until tomorrow’s injury report to see if he is fit enough to have the opportunity to break that record next week.
You’ve been waiting all month, and here they are: the top ten goals of the month of March.
It was definitely a good month of stunning strikes!
The world’s greatest player was feted by Bolivian president Evo Morales after the World Cup qualifier against Argentina. Morales presented Lionel Messi with a poncho after the 1-1 draw in La Paz, but maybe he should have checked his size before making the presentation. What do you think?
Talk about some serious skills, an artist by the name of Lenard’ Art painted portraits of global superstars Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo with a football? Yes, a football.
Don’t believe us? Well, click on these videos to watch the art process unfold before your very own eyes.
From the Champions League (Lionel Messi’s wonder strike against Milan) to the CONCACAF Champions League (Djimi Traore’s rocket vs. Tigres), we saw a lot of wonderful Goal of the Month nominees this week.
Check them all out at once, and don’t forget to use the twitter hashtag #GOMonFOX whenever you see a great goal!
