A statue of Argentine football star Lionel Messi has been vandalised in Buenos Aires. The bronze statue, unveiled last June, was broken in half and the torso, arms and head removed.

The motive for the damage was not clear but city officials say repairs to the statue are already under way. It was unveiled just as the striker announced he was retiring from the national team – a decision he later reversed.

This comes few days after he lost the FIFA Best Player to Ronaldo in Zurich. The Barcelona star was heavily criticized by football legends Maradona and Roberto Carlos for choosing to boycott the event. See pictures below.
