Lionel Messi's wayward shot hits Villarreal fan as Barcelona draw

A wayward shot from Lionel Messi is something of a rarity, but alas it was an over-hit effort from the Barcelona star that caused a Villarreal fan to very nearly pass out during Sunday afternoon's meeting between the two sides at El Madrigal.

After letting rip from the edge of the box, Messi's shot sailed high over the crossbar and into the crowd behind the goal, where it struck a young Villarreal fan at a fair old rate of knots.

The poor supporter was left woozy in the aftermath of the collision as stadium medical staff attempted to comfort her.

However, initial reports that she suffered a fractured wrist thankfully appear to be wide of the mark -- much like Messi's shot.
