Argentina icon, Lionel Messi is widely considered to be the greatest player in the history of sport, with the striker winning numerous professional and individual honours during his career so far, including a record six Ballon d'Or awards.

Messi finally won his first major international trophy with his country after leading Argentina to their first Copa America title since 1993, with the skipper leading from the front as he scored four goals and provided five assists to be named as the "Player of the Tournament".

The 34-year-old looks like a burden of his shoulders has been lifted and on Sunday participated in a dance with Argentina's Olympic team. The dance done by the superstar was greeted with near hysteria by commentators in his country, who went on to describe the significance of the event.

"What Leo is doing is priceless, he's from another dimension. What a phenomenon you are, Leo. Only one sportsman can have an exact notion of what this means and that is Leo Messi," one commentator said, while another stated," It's a gesture... It's not a come and dance for a while. No, no. After Diego [Maradona], he's the guy that many of us wanted to push for to win that title [the Copa America]. He's a genius."

Messi is currently on vacation and is yet to return back to Barcelona for pre-season training as despite reports emerging that he has agreed a new five-year deal with the Catalan giants - the player is yet to put pen to paper on the new deal.
