Christmas greetings from Sergio Ramos, Dybala, Mbappé...
Maintaining tradition, many of the world's leading football players took time to post festive greetings to their fans via their respective social media platforms.

In the footballing world, social media Christmas presents top football players an opportunity to show their creative side and in turn send seasons greetings to their legions of followers.
