Pitch Invader Gets Hug From Lionel Messi, Polishes His Shoes

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I4vLAsZmuok&feature=share

At Argentina’s open practice on Wednesday, a Diehard Lionel Messi fan ran onto the field begging for the attention of the 26-year-old striker. As you can see at the 0:25 mark of the video, not only did the guy get to polish Messi’s right foot, the pitch invader also got a hug and a sweater from Leo. Pretty awesome gesture by Messi even if he originally was caught off guard. Messi and Argentina open against Bosnia Sunday.
