Lionel Messi has made a massive donation to Unicef Argentina.

Through his charitable foundation, the Lionel Messi Foundation, the Barcelona superstar donated a massive 4,500,000 Argentinian pesos to the organisation.

That converts into just sort of £315,000 - Messi reportedly makes around £500,000-a-week at Barcelona.


"It’s a pleasure to be with you all through this video, collaborating with the people of Unicef," said Messi.
