They call it the Silly Season for a reason. Here is a collection of sportspeople getting in with the hype, and nobody does unbridled Christmas glee quite like Andy Murray.
There are few people better suited to playing Father Christmas than Mike Gatting.
At least he did not end up with Davey Warner on his lap.

Tasteful is not really a word you could use to describe Drew Mitchell and Matt Giteau though.
Surprise package Exeter Rugby team has their Xmas party. Not overly remarkable except for the state of those recycling bins.
Spare a thought for this Manchester City fan. It is one thing to watch your team go down against Arsenal, but it must hurt more when you are dressed as a Christmas tree.

And no Xmas would be complete without legendary FIFA whistle-blower Chuck Blazer.
