​EURO2016: Wales semi-final takes precedence for Chris Gunter's parents over son's wedding!

Chris Gunter's parents have taken the decision to miss the wedding of their other son Marc in order to watch Wales' historic Euro 2016 semi-final against Portugal, reports the Daily Mirror.

The Wales defender is now set to perform his best man duties via Skype.

Gunter's brother Marc and his fiancee Danielle are in Mexico ahead of the ceremony on Thursday. Parents Sarah and Gerald had planned to fly out and join them, but Wales' 3-1 quarter-final win over Belgium on Friday night means they will stay in France.

"You couldn't begin to imagine the trouble it's caused," said Chris. "I'm not sure what Marc will do if we make the final. He might be divorced by then."
