Lionel Messi

Ok, the bickering between worshippers of the churches of Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo is unprecedented, but pretty much everyone outside of the cult of CR7 accepts Messi is great.

The little Argentine is often called the greatest ever and he draws massive crowds wherever he goes, while at the same time seemingly maintaining a relatively down to earth mindset and coming across a pretty decent bloke.

For the modern professional footballer that is quite a feat.
