With all the scandal surrounding footballers and their off pitch antics we’ve got to applaud and congratulate  Chelsea and Ivory Coast star Didier Drogba for remaining the gentlemen and giving his wife Lalla Diakite the wedding of her dreams.

The intimate ceremony took place in the South of France at the weekend. The couple’s closest family and friends were invited as well as celebrities such as Akon and a string of American basketball players, plus Nigerian singer J.Martins.

Compared to the media circuses we are used to seeing for other celeb weddings we are really pleased to see Drogba keeping his family life private and not seeking to cash-in on a cheesy, tacky glossy magazine wedding.

We wish the Drogba’s all the happiness and luck in the future. Well done them!
