With Argentina in town to play Italy in a friendly at the Etihad on Friday night, Lionel Messi took time out from his pre-match preparations to make a group of young kids’ day.

After training at the Etihad Campus, Sergio Aguero escorted Messi to the indoor facility, where the five-time Ballon d’Or winner met and posed for photos with City’s Under-7 and Under-8 academy teams…

Aw, how nice. Those kids are never going to forget the day they met their idol.

Messi then headed back to the training pitch, where he proceeded to make everybody else feel helplessly, shatteringly inadequate (again)…

How disheartening it must be to have to train alongside that guy every day.
