Lionel Messi shows true character in resolving an issue with Sergio Aguero

dailystar: Lionel Messi has shown his human side in a WhatsApp voice note to Sergio Aguero clarifying an awkward encounter with a YouTuber in Argentina.

Popular eSports gamer Ibai Llanos, who boasts 1.6million Twitter followers, hit the headlines when he met Messi at an Adidas event last year and cracked under the pressure of meeting arguably the world’s greatest ever footballer.

Footage of the meeting went viral as Llanos shook Messi’s hand and posed for a quick photo before instantly walking off and leaving the Barcelona superstar alone when they had been meant to share the stage.

“I don’t know what the hell I’ve done that seems to ignore him when I greet him because of the shame he was giving me, I’m freaking out Messi thought he was drunk,” he wrote on Twitter at the time.

The issue was raised as Messi’s Argentina team-mate Sergio Aguero appeared in Llanos’ show this weekend.

And when he found out, Messi sent a WhatsApp audio to Aguero which was played live on air.

The audio showed his forgiving and humorous side as he joked that Llanos had left him in a bad position but insisted “everything is fine”.

He asked Aguero to let him know the incident was forgotten as he showed a glimpse of his relaxed character behind closed doors.

Messi said (via Mundo Deportivo ): “Kun, I’m looking at you that you’re there with Ibai, tell him that everything is fine, that nothing happens.

“He left me paying, he left me badly in front of everyone but nothing happened.”

An excited Llanos shared the footage on his social media accounts, writing: “Today I was live talking to Kun about the greeting I made to Messi.

“And while we were talking Messi sends a voice note to Kun’s whatsapp to send me a message.

“How about your day?”

Despite being a global superstar, Messi has generally tended to keep a low profile as much as possible and remain private.

The encounter with friend and team-mate Aguero gives a fascinating insight into his character away from the limelight and shows he is human after all.
