The UEFA Champions League is officially back on our screens tonight, so to get in the mood for this evening’s festivities let’s remember a classic gesture of love from a dream wedding day.
It’s the year 2012 and Catalan couple Marcos and Neus are getting married.
It’s a joyous day for everyone involved, but things peaked in the ceremony when bride Neus decided to pull out the ultimate trump card.
In a moment of sheer joy, she decided to hire the Renaissance Choir of Sant Boi de Llobregat to perform the iconic Champions League anthem and well, the rest is history.
The look on Marcus’ face says it all.
Two minutes into the incredible performance, the groom punches the air and mouths the words to the iconic anthem. He definitely enjoyed this one, Neus.
To be fair, If you haven’t placed your hands behind your back and belted out the Tony Britten composed Champions League song as your family looks on with a hint of embarrassment and regret, then something is seriously wrong.
Five-time Ballon d’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo got so pumped up with the trademark track in October 2017 before a game against Spurs that he couldn’t help but sing it as though it was the national anthem.
You can’t not get in the zone when the ‘Champions’ blasts out over the tannoy but when you actually read up on the lyrics when translated, it takes it down a peg. It’s a tad underwhelming to be honest.

We still love it, though.
