Lionel Messi joins in with Stay At Home challenge as Barcelona man posts attempt

Lionel Messi has made sure he isn't missing out on the latest craze to sweep football after the Barcelona forward shared his attempt at the Stay At Home challenge.

With football suspended around the world owing to the coronavirus outbreak, many global stars have found they have some time on their hands.

While Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has been perfecting his dance moves with pop star girlfriend Perrie Edwards and Sergio Aguero has been making pizzas, others have found another way to cure the boredom.

Plenty of footballers have been keeping their eye in at home by playing keepy-uppy, but instead of using a football, they are often using one of the symbols of this current crisis – a roll of toilet paper.

The likes of Chelsea's Mason Mount and Man United pair Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford have already shared with the world their attempts.

Mount's fellow Blue Christian Pulisic did similar on Thursday, though his video didn't exactly go to plan as he fell on his bottom while attempting an 'around the world' trick.

Messi. as you would expect, avoided a similar fate as he showed his trademark skill and calmness throughout his effort, never once looking in bother.

The Argentina international calmly kept his roll of toilet paper in the air throughout the clip shared on his Instagram account, producing deft flicks with both feet and his chest.

The 32-year-old then finished with a flourish as he volleyed the loo roll out of shot – no doubt it would have found top bins had Messi been on a pitch.
