 Exciting news for all the Lionel Messi fans across the globe. FC Barcelona captain Lionel Messi is to be the basis of a new show by Cirque du Soleil.

Messi teased the news on Tuesday by releasing a video of him performing kick-ups with a clown nose on his Instagram page before the announcement was confirmed a day later.

“Cirque du Soleil is a family favourite of ours. I have no doubt this show will amaze people as their shows always do. We are thrilled to be working with such a living legend,” added Jonathan Tetrault, president and chief operating officer at Cirque du Soleil.
