Sporting stars around the world were celebrating Halloween on Monday, getting into the spirit by dressing up and carving pumpkins.
The likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Patrice Evra displayed a penchant for the eccentric, while former Liverpool man Luis Garcia poked fun at Chelsea fans.
Away from football, former women’s singles number one Caroline Wozniacki changed from her usual on-court outfit, while the England rugby team picked a Halloween XV.

A number of Premier League footballers showed admirable commitment to fancy dress, including Lucas Leiva, David Ospina and Philippe Coutinho.
