'Eid Mubarak everyone!' - Pogba, Ozil & Ribery celebrate Islamic feast day

A host of global stars were revelling in the celebratory mood as Muslims marked the end of Ramadan and the beginning of the feast

Arsenal's Mesut Ozil and Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba were among the footballers to wish their followers Eid Mubarak on Sunday as they marked Eid al-Fitr.

The blessing is exchanged between Muslims at the end of Ramadan, when followers of the faith are no longer required to fast, and plenty of household names are partaking in the festivities.

A host of clubs also shared good wishes, with Manchester United, Manchester City and Liverpool sending messages to their Muslim supporters.
