adidas Speed Week Barcelona with Lionel Messi



Edited Package
Lionel Messi just won his second FIFA Ballon d'Or, scored a hat trick to take Barcelona to the semi-finals of the Kings Cup and today the Argentine international was handed back his missing adizero F50 Prime football boots. Five fast fans of the 23-year-old followed the story of the adidas Boot Heist on Facebook and searched Barcelona high and low to discover Messi's boots on Thursday. Today they personally returned the lightest ever adidas football boots to Messi in time for his next Liga game against Malaga. The five winners from Barcelona asked Messi how he came to be so fast on the pitch and tested their computer game skills against the two time Ballon d'Or winner in a game of Pro Evolution Soccer.
