To commemorate the 14th anniversary of Lionel Messi washing up on the shores of Barcelona wrapped up in swaddling in a little wicker basket bathed in a golden halo of light, Barcelona have posted a scan of the forward’s first ever provisional registration card for the club – including the then-13-year-old’s passport photo…

He hasn’t changed – or grown, for that matter – one bit.

    At that exact point in time I was earning a living working full-time in Woolworths.

    Good god time flies!
