 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. We are convinced that bringing Messi’s legacy to life on stage will touch audiences and speak to all football fans.”
 
Cirque du Soleil’s Messi show is set to be launched in 2019, with tour dates yet to be confirmed.
