Members of Atlético's first team gathered together to celebrate New Year's Eve - and to try their hand at doing a 'Mannequin Challenge'...

Griezmann, Godín, Gameiro... Atlético Madrid stars see in 2017

A group of Atlético Madrid players came together on Saturday evening to see in the New Year - and wave goodbye to 2016 by having a go at one of the chief social-media crazes to have emerged over the past 12 months.

Players post pics - and 'Mannequin Challenge' video

Diego Godín, Antoine Griezmann, Kevin Gameiro, José María Giménez, Ángel Correa and Nico Gaitán offered evidence of their off-field rapport by enjoying New Year's Eve in each other's company, with the six also joined by family and friends.

Godín, Correa and Gaitán tweeted photos of the occasion - but Griezmann went one better, posting a video of the gathering's attempt at a 'Mannequin Challenge'.

2017 gets underway with Copa tie

Following their Christmas break, the Atlético squad have returned to training as they ready themselves for the second half of the 2016/17 season, and on Friday were in Saudi Arabia for a 3-2 friendly win over Al-Ittihad.

Diego Simeone's men kick off the New Year with a Copa del Rey round-of-16 clash against Las Palmas on Tuesday.
