3. Lionel Messi

Lionel Messi has become an icon of world football and as a result has become a huge celebrity.

As many consider him to be the best player in world football, especially after winning the Balon d'Or for a record fourth time, his name is recognizable to almost everybody in the world.

He currently features in an icon signature line sponsored by Adidas, becoming only
the second brand ambassador to have an icon signature line done by Adidas, the other being a footballer later on this list. Messi has also featured in a Chinese advert for a new app, a Turkish airlines advert with Kobe Bryant, and a Samsung advert for the Note 3.

Messi has truly become a celebrity across the world, and expect more and more
people to know his name as he continues on his road to become the best
footballer ever.
