Lewis Hamilton and Conor McGregor are undisputed superstars of their sports and far from shrinking violets away from the track and octagon.

So it was true to form that the pair were impossible to miss in a crowd packed with glitz and glamour on Monday night in London.

The F1 world champion and UFC lightweight title holder linked up at a star-studded function at Royal Albert Hall ahead of The Fashion Awards 2017.

Hamilton and McGregor posed with legendary designer Donatella Versace, with the motorsport star appearing to model an elaborate necklace in keeping with the event partner Swarovski.

Nothing could distract from Hamilton's loud, tartan-style suit, while McGregor - no stranger to eye-catching formal wear - went with a shiny burgundy option.

The duo were surrounded by beautiful women, including Cristiano Ronaldo's ex-girlfriend and supermodel Irina Shayk and British pop star Rita Ora.
