With Lionel Messi having made his debut for Paris Saint-Germain on the weekend, how his arrival has already broken records in terms of Ligue 1 viewership has reportedly been revealed.
The 34-year-old appeared in the French giants' colours for the first time in their 2-0 win over Stade Reims on Sunday, a game in which he was introduced as a second-half substitute.
It has taken a few weeks for the six-time Ballon d'Or winner to make his debut for the club as he did not have a pre-season following his 2021 Copa America triumph with Argentina.
According to the Daily Mirror, however, more than 10.5 million people tuned in to catch a glimpse of Messi's first game of his post-Barcelona era, a figure that reportedly makes it the most-watched Ligue 1 match of all time.
The Argentine replaced Neymar in the 66th minute of the clash, with supporters getting the chance to see him play alongside Kylian Mbappe for the first time.
It was Mbappe who scored both of PSG's goals in their victory over Reims, whom former Orlando Pirates midfielder Marshall Munetsi represents in France.
