Messi The 'Goat' – Other Players Who Have Been Snapped With Animals

Lionel Messi's "GOAT" photoshoot with PAPER magazine earlier this week was one for the books, and got everyone talking. However Messi is not the only player who has been in pictures with animals... Can you guess who else has done so?

"GOAT" stands for "Greatest Of All Time", with Messi having been honoured with the acronym after many on social media began associating the Barcelona legend as the best to ever play the game.

PAPER magazine cleverly played on this theme and hosted a photoshoot with Messi posing with real goats.
