New Twitter owner Elon Musk and French President Emmanuel Macron was among the guests to attend the FIFA World Cup final tonight in Qatar, a match that saw Argentina lift its third trophy.

Fresh off the back of spates with journalists over accusations of doxing on the social media site, Musk used his private jet to travel to Doha for the tournament conclusion at the Lusail Stadium.

Throughout the tournament, the South African-American billionaire encouraged users to watch the World Cup matches on Twitter.

He was pictured next to American businessman Jared Kushner, best remembered for being the senior advisor to United States President Donald Trump during his tenure as head of state.

Macron attended the final too, notably consoling a despondent Kylian Mbappe on the pitch after France's defeat on penalties to the South Americans, with the score finishing 3-3 after extra-time.

Qatari Emir Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani presented the trophy with FIFA President Gianni Infantino to Argentinian captain Lionel Messi, who finally got his hands on the prize.

Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the President of Turkey, was also in attendance.

From the stands, Jamaican sprint legend and eight-time Olympic champion Usain Bolt posted videos showing himself at the stadium.

Serbian tennis great and 21-time Grand Slam champion Novak Djokovic was spotted speaking to Formula 1 driver Pierre Gasly at the match too - with the Frenchman recently signing for Alpine.

Former English football star David Beckham - who has been criticised for his public relations stunts promoting Qatar - was there too, as was Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic and mixed martial arts star Khabib Nurmagomedov.

French midfielder Paul Pogba, who played a crucial part in his nation's World Cup campaign four years ago, stood on the stands too having not been selected due to injury.

Notably, Argentina's President Alberto Fernandez chose to watch from home instead of flying to Qatar.
