Getting a jersey signed by one of your favourite footballers is one thing, but when Lionel Messi is your favourite player of all time and he signs your shirt, you savour the moment forever. Did you see the fan who got his shirt signed by the Argentina legend?
FC Barcelona touched down on South African soil this morning, and were greeted by a huge crowd of local football fans who had flocked to the OR Tambo International Airport.
Days leading up to the game, murmurs on social media made the rounds with word on the street being that Messi would not be travelling with the team.
However, Barcelona confirmed on Tuesday night that the Argentine would indeed make his way to Mzansi, and the fans were in awe of his presence upon his arrival.
One lucky fan in particular managed to get his Barcelona jersey signed by the superstar, and he broke down in tears thereafter.
Here are some images of the young man after getting his shirt signed by Messi:
