Leo Messi gets patted down at the Barcelona airport

by Tom Conn | Posted on Wednesday, April 9th, 2014

Barcelona forward Leo Messi, having won four consecutive Ballon d’Ors and countless titles during his already storied career, is a fairly recognisable figure and is constantly having to fend off fans, but one fan was particularly original in getting a brush with the Argentine.


As the Barcelona players were setting off to Madrid on Tuesday morning, the team passed through security before Messi was stopped and patted down before being allowed to leave.

Messi took it in good fun, but so did his teammates.

Meanwhile the airport security guard will have a tale to tell his family and will likely take full credit for “blessing” Messi should the Blaugrana advance to the semi-finals and win the Champions League.
