Lionel Messi Meets The Pope, Gives Him A Pot Plant (Video)

By Alan Duffy

The great one,  followed by million around the world and anointed by God himself,  little Lionel Messi produced a corker for his first ever Instagram video.

The video in question shows the Barca genius meeting his fellow countryman Pope Frankie I in the Vatican and presenting the football-loving pontiff with both an Argentina shirt and, for some reason, a pot plant. The meeting took place ahead of the upcoming Italy v Argentina friendly, with both squads attending the Papal event.

As for the pot plant, God knows why. So presumably he’ll tell the Pope.

    It’s an olive tree… A sign of peace.

    Looks like an olive tree to me. A sign of peace

    Don’t you love the hesitation before the pope takes the plant? That one moment where he’s just thinking wtfuck?

    I think it’s an olive tree, which, for the uneducated, is a sign of peace.
