  • Messi announces Cirque du Soleil show based on his life

The life of Lionel Messi will be the subject of a new Cirque du Soleil show in 2019.

"Cirque du Soleil is a family favourite of ours".

Cirque du Soleil said on their website that they were thrilled to confirm the link-up with Messi, 31.

"The show will celebrate Messi's legacy in Cirque du Soleil's signature way, highlighting the rich culture that makes this sport the most popular worldwide", the company announced on Wednesday.

Messi is the latest global entertainer to be honoured by the Montreal-based circus company, following in the footsteps of previous shows about Michael Jackson and The Beatles.

You can name it - pass, post up, shoot the ball, bring the ball up, being a playmaker - so I'm excited to break that stereotype. His trash talking and trolling are already legendary, and Embiid is only scratching the surface of how popular he can become.

Messi is a five-time Ballon d'Or victor and has won four Champions Leagues with Barcelona, where he has spent his entire playing career.

The Argentina and Barcelona star will be collaborating with Cirque du Soleil, PopArt Music and Sony Music on the show, which is expected to debut in 2019.

"I have no doubt this show will amaze people as their shows always do".
