The Christmas spirit has taken over the sports world in India as the world celebrates the day on December 25, Wednesday. With Xmas trees, Santa hats and special cakes, Christmas is all on everyone's mind.

The Indian sports world was no different to the rest of the world as sportspersons celebrated the day and took to social media to wish their fans a 'Merry Christmas'.

Bengaluru FC, who also play ATK on Christmas Day in Kolkata at the Salt Lake Stadium, put their Santa hats on as Sunil Chhetri, Dimas Delgado and Gurpreet Singh Sandhu put a funny flavour behind their wishes.

BFC captain Chhetri posted a photo of himself and Delgado, with the latter wearing a Santa cap, and wished everyone on behalf of the "two men on the team who are old enough to play Santa at your kids' party."

Gurpreet also put up an image of himself in action in front of the goal but with the twist of a Santa cap.

Indian defender Sandesh Jhingan, who is currently recovering from an ACL injury, also posted a photograph of himself in front of an Xmas tree and wished everyone on the day.

The badminton fraternity was not far behind in wishing their fans on Christmas day and 2010 Commonwealth Games gold medallist Parupalli Kashyap even put up a short video of himself dancing.

Wishes also came from the tennis world with Mahesh Bhupathi posted pictures of his family, where Lara Dutta was also seen with their daughter.

Here are the other Christmas wishes from the sports world:
