Lionel Messi is one of the greatest gifts to the world of football. He is blessed with both outstanding ball control and pace and has won several top honours including seven Ballon d'Or, four Champions League, six European Golden Boots, an and Olympic gold medal, 10 La Liga titles among others.

Messi was born in Rosario, Argentina on 24 June 1987, and at the age of four, he joined FC Grandoli, coached by his father. Later he moved to his boyhood favourite club Newell’s Old Boy.

When he was 11, Messi was diagnosed with a growth deficiency disease that required expensive treatment. After watching his talent, FC Barcelona was so impressed that they paid for his medical treatment in return for signing him for their under-14 team. At 17, he joined Barcelona. In 2007, he became the youngest to score a hat-trick against Real Madrid in an El Clasico game.

During his career, the Argentine has made countless records. He holds the record of Ballon d’Or titles from 2009 to 2021 and stood atop the podium in Paris in December 2021.

After serving Barcelona for more than two decades, Messi’s tearful exit from his childhood club shocked the entire world. For the Culers, the left-footed magician has recorded a total of 672 goals and 288 assists in 778 games. Reuniting with former Barca teammate Neymar, Messi has featured in 34 matches so far for Paris Saint-Germain and has netted 11 goals in his first season.

Messi is married to Antonela Roccuzzo and the couple have three sons together. Today, on the occasion of Lionel Messi’s 35th birthday, let’s have a look at some of his adorable photos with his family:
