It must be hard being the greatest footballer in the world.
The simple things in life are just out of the question.
Like talking a walk to your local shop to pick up some groceries.

Or, in Lionel Messi’s case, going to the theatre.
You’d think in the darkness of a large theatre room that you’d be able to be relatively unnoticed to the actors and the surrounding audience.
But not if you’re one of the greatest footballers of all time. Scroll down to see the video.
The Argentine superstar was sitting near the front and, when the play was finished, was pulled up onto the stage.
But the actors weren’t finished there. They got the whole crowd to hail the five-time Ballon d’Or winner with chants of “Messi, Messi, Messi,” leaving the 28-year-old undoubtedly very embarrassed.
Actors bowed down at his feet while the lucky crowd reached for any device that could record in an attempt to capture this amazing experience.
Imagine going to see a play and ending up seeing Messi on the stage.
Messi appeared to take it in good spirits though and laughed throughout, although you couldn’t blame him for feeling a little bit awkward.
Unfortunately, that’s one of the negatives of being a world famous superstar - the fact that you get noticed everywhere.
Messi was taking time during international duty after he inspired Argentina to a 2-1 victory over Chile in a World Cup qualifier.
Whilst he failed to have a single shot, Messi laid on the winning goal for Gabriel Mercado to give his nation a much needed three points.
They currently sit fifth in the South American table ahead of their clash with Bolivia on Wednesday.
