Sports stars dress up for Halloween

We put together some of the best costumes we could find as sports stars across the world got into the spooky spirit of Halloween.

When you think about it, there is arguably no better person for Floyd Mayweather to dress up as. “If I’m going to be any superhero, I have to be the richest superhero…” Yes Floyd, you nailed it.

If I'm going to be any superhero, I have to be the richest superhero. #TonyStarks aka. #IronMan #Halloween2016

He may not have won as many gold medals as he hoped to in Rio, but US swimmer and Michael Phelps’ second fiddle Ryan Lochte sure pulled off a great Mad Hatter.

Next up, we have Cristiano Ronaldo. We aren’t exactly sure what look he’s going for here, or even if he’s on the left or right. But we are certain he sparks more fear in defenders in his Real Madrid kit. C’mon CR7!?

Happy Halloween day???

For some who has been banned from playing tennis, Maria Sharapova has still been making the odd headline. The Russian went to her party as Pippa Longstocking and while the choice is a bit left field, she certainly looked the part.

Pippi really getting wild over here #halloween

Always a presence on social media, Ian Poulter couldn’t resist showing off his kids’ outfits. They look so legit, well done Poulter’s!

Meanwhile, back Stateside, the Broncos cheerleaders dressed up for the game against the Chargers. This T-Rex cheerleader had heads turning.

Tennis star Eugenie Bouchard also opted for the superhero route, dressing up as Catwoman. We’re not sure Catwoman showed that much skin, but perhaps she ran out of material…

Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina got the whole family involved with this one and looks quite chuffed with himself.

Liverpool player Philippe Coutinho took inspiration from Suicide Squad, with him as the Joker and his significant other as the crazy Harley Quinn. Their poor kid looks a touch confused though…

Suicide squad ? #joker? #harleyquinn #witch
