SPORTS stars across the world have been embracing the Christmas spirit as the big day approaches.
Manchester United legends David Beckham and Patrice Evra led the way with their very different approaches to the festive season.

Becks, 46, shared a chilly-looking snap of himself clutching a mug of something warm while wearing a Santa hat.
The ex-England captain also shared a picture posing in a Christmas jumper, snazzy glasses alongside a glass of red wine.
Beckham captioned his post: “Very Christmasy over here – coffee & wine ( I promise the wine was yesterday).
“Happy Christmas Eve. Who’s more excited me or the kiddies?”
Another former Old Trafford star, Evra, had a slightly different approach to the festive season.
Wearing a Santa-riding-a-reindeer suit, Evra bounced around his home before urging Instagram to ‘block my account for having too much fun’.
