Up to three households across the country were only allowed to meet on Christmas Day.
Those living in Tier 4 areas are required to stay at home, barring limited legal exemptions that include work and education. People are not allowed to meet others indoors unless you live with them or they are part of your bubble of support.
The meeting is believed to have taken place at Lo Celso’s house with replicas of Ligue 1 and Coupe de la Ligue trophies won during his time in Paris Saint-Germain pictured in the background.
