Video: Lionel Messi's insane first touch after launching ball 5 storeys high
In a Japanese TV show, Messi kicked the ball over an obstacle that was 18m high and collected the ball with ease!
Here’s yet another reminder that Lionel Messi isn't from this planet. The Argentine phenom showcased his phenomenal first touch during a recent appearance on a Japanese television show.
After a pair of cranes hoisted a fence to a height of 18 metres, Messi was asked to kick a ball over the obstacle and collect it on the other side without letting it touch the ground.
It is obviously not an easy task. A challenge that that even many football legends would struggle to complete. But up stepped the four-time Ballon d’Or winner and left everyone watching with their mouths wide open in shock.
What’s more, he did it on the very first try – phenomenal!
