Whilst on international duty with Argentina at the weekend, Lionel Messi once again found himself in the spotlight, this time at the Apollo theatre. The pint-sized genius was in the audience for the  ‘The Other Side of the Bed’ play when the lead actor (and Messi’s mate) Nicolas Vasquez hauled him up on stage at the end.


Unsurprisingly, the cast and audience all hailed their mesmeric fellow countryman…

Messi and his Argentina team-mates enjoyed a hard-fought 2-1 win away to Chile on Thursday, in a re-run of last summer’s Copa America final, while they’ll face Bolivia at home onWednesday.
