Top footballers made an appearance at Thames Jeep in Bath Road on Saturday.

Juventus players Gonzalo Higuain and Andrea Barzagli were greeted by hoards of fans eager for selfies and to get their shirts signed.

The stars, whose team is sponsored by Jeep, were in the country to play West Ham on Sunday.

Damien Dally, manager of Jeep UK, was at the event but admitted to not being the biggest football fan.

Despite this he said: "It is a pretty big deal to have them here.

"Jeep has sponsored Juventus for five years and all the players drive Jeeps."

Matteo Mennone from Burnham was one of the lucky Juventus fans to get a chance to meet the superstars.

The nine-year-old said: "I like Higuain because he used to play for Napoli."

It was the first time he had met players from Juventus but he added he has previously met players from his other favourite team, Chelsea.
