Lionel Messi has featured in a new adidas advert pulling off a remarkable nutmeg from across a football pitch.
The advert titled ‘Here to Create’, sees the Argentine in a training kit doing a few kick-ups before wickedly curling the ball towards a reporter on the other side of the pitch.
After a short while, the ball ends up going straight through the reporters legs – a good 50 yards away from the attempt.
The reporter, as could of been his cue, looked around quizzically trying to take in what on earth just happened.
There was plenty of reaction on Twitter after the video was released, including more talk surrounding the Cristiano Ronaldo vs Messi debate.
Other than fulfilling duties from a commercial sense, the 31-year-old has been preparing for the start of the La Liga season on Saturday following some time off after a disappointing World Cup with Argentina.
Barcelona ran away with the title last season finishing a good 14 points ahead of nearest rivals Atletico Madrid and 17 in front of Real Madrid.
They kick of their campaign at the Camp Nou on Saturday evening against Deportivo Alaves with boss Ernesto Valverde calling up a strong squad for the fixture.
