Seven-time Ballon d’Or winner and Paris Saint-Germain player, Lionel Messi made a young fan happy after he intervened to stop security guards from dragging a young fan away and then granted the boy a picture with him after the ordeal.
Messi opened the scoring in a 4-0 rout, while Neymar chipped in with a brace and Sergio Ramos also got in on the act during PSG’s victory over Nantes in the Trophee des Champions final on Sunday.
After the trophy presentation, Messi was heading down the tunnel at the Bloomfield Stadium in Tel Aviv, Israel, when a young boy dashed towards him with a mobile phone in his hand.
Security guards grabbed the boy and started pulling him away from Messi, and he appeared to be distressed as his phone slipped from his hand.
Messi then instructed the guards to let the fan go and gave him the time to pick up his phone before standing with him for a photo and giving him a hug.
