Yet more video evidence that Barcelona forward Lionel Messi may well be the greatest player on the planet

Just when you think you have seen the best Lionel Messi has to offer, he goes and raises the bar again.

Just when you think Barcelona's little genius has finally reached the limits of his brilliance, he produces a moment of skill even more outrageously brilliant than the last.

Just when you think it's impossible for a human being to get any better at football, Messi goes and does something likeā€¦ well, score the goal you can see in the clip below.

It comes from a kickabout from Barcelona's training ground, with famous Italian musician Eros Ramazzotti (think Gary Barlow rocking up to Man City training and doing header tennis with Yaya Toure and you've got the right sort of idea).The pop star challenges Messi to score from where he's standing - about 20 yards behind the corner flag.
So what does Messi do? Scores, of course.

Our favourite bit of the video isn't actually Messi's incredible strike - it's how Sergio Busquets reacts. Busquets is a Champions League and World Cup winner. He is (quite possibly) the best in the world in his particular position. And even he can only laugh in amazement at Messi's genius.

Says it all, doesn't it?

That, ladies and gentlemen, is why we should all bow down at the feet of the greatest player on the planet.

Ain't that right, Leo?
