Even the best soccer player in the world sometimes gets overwhelmed by the stifling summer heat. The difference between Lionel Messi and the rest of us, however, is that even when the soccer genius gets heat stroke and barfs all over the field, he still manages to dominate the game.
On Sunday, playing for FC Barcelona in the first of two matches against Real Madrid to determine this year’s Supercopa champion, Messi’s stomach became a little unsettled. Toward the end of the first half, camera’s were on him when he stopped, grabbed his belly, bent over, and had a nice cleansing heave right there on the grass.
Messi’s a pro, however, so he didn’t let it stop him. Hell, it didn’t even slow him down. Just minutes after spewing chunks before millions of fans on live television, Lionel scored a dazzling goal to give Barca the lead right before halftime.
All in all, it was just another day in the life of Lionel Messi.
