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.

What’s more, he did it on the very first try – phenomenal!
