The I Bet singer, 30, looked like the cat who got the cream as her huge diamond wedding ring also made its debut.

The sparkler matched the rest of Ciara's jewellery as she swept along the red carpet in a light pink and diamante dress, that highlighted her toned figure.

Russell, who plays for the Seattle Seahawks, looked in his element at the ESPYs, which honour outstanding sporting achievement.

It was a star-studded night that was opened by sportsmen LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, Dwyane Wade and Chris Paul addressing the police shootings of black men.

Dwayne said: "The racial profiling has to stop. The shoot-to-kill mentality has to stop. Not seeing the value of black and brown bodies has to stop."
