FIFA 15 Lionel Messi TV Ad 1

Argentine star Lionel Messi didn't want to stop for his adoring Barcelona fans, putting his pedal to the metal to avoid their attentions.

Barcelona fans love Lionel Messi and any chance they can get for an autograph, or a selfie with their idol, they're always on hand outside the training base of the Catalan club.

Last Friday however, a group of fans didn't quite get the selfie they were hoping for, as Messi approached them in his powerful Cadillac Escalade...

...Good job they showed swift reactions, as Messi didn't show any signs he was going to stop!

Renowned for his ability to carve his way through any defence placed before him, it looks like Messi also sees things the same way when he's behind the wheel of a car.

Coming through!

Messi isn't the only Barcelona player who can have some dodgy moments behind the wheel, ex-Arsenal defender Thomas Vermaelen had a nightmare getting into the car park earlier in the season.

The Belgian international required a number of attempts to get round a tight corner and made such hard work of it that watching Barcelona supporters offered to park the car for him!
