Lionel Messi meets robot twin in advert

Published 2 Comments

Is Lionel Messi human? Now, that is a question that has been asked time and time again by football fans from all over the world. 

The Barcelona superstar has wowed us for well over a decade and is showing no signs of slowing down as he continues to prove himself as one of the greatest footballers of all-time. 

Unsurprisingly, as one of the most iconic sportsmen on the planet, Messi has been involved in a number of adverts throughout his career.

Well, his latest on-screen performance is rather interesting...

Robotic Messi, anyone? That's right, in an advert for phone company Ooredoo, the Argentine's robotic twin produces some remarkable things with a football. Where have you heard that before?

In fact, this Messi even produces some truly outrageous flips and tricks...perhaps, then, the robot is better than the man himself. 

Well, the Barcelona superstar eventually entered the frame, coming face-to-face with his robotic twin. Yeah, we don't really get the concept either, but it's still fascinating to watch.

Brilliant Messi

Messi, of course, will be hoping to lead his side to another season of remarkable success. After last year's incredible triumph on all platforms, Luis Enrique's side will have to be at their very best once again in the latter stages of this campaign.

But this Barcelona side, with Messi leading the way, have the components to achieve greatness. The Catalans are closing in on a place in the Champions League quarter-final, while they have already booked their place in the Copa del Rey final. 

With a healthy eight-point advantage at the summit of La Liga, they will be extremely confident of retaining their title. 

But it's retaining the Champions League trophy that will truly propel them to greatness. No team has ever won back-to-back Champions League trophies in its current format, so they could make even more history over the coming months. 

Will Messi inspire Barcelona to another Champions League trophy? Have your say below!
