Barack Obama reveals his daughters wanted to meet Lionel Messi

Not everyone can meet Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi -- not even the daughters of the President of the United States, Barack Obama.

Obama was speaking at the Young Leaders of the Americas Initiative Town Hall in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and revealed that his daughters Sasha and Malia had asked him if they could meet the Argentine No. 10.

But even the POTUS could not make it happen.

"I also wanted to bring my daughters here, so they could see the beauty and the vibrancy of this city," he told the crowd. "They've already met one famous Argentinean -- His Holiness Pope Francis. Now they want to meet [Lionel] Messi, but I could not arrange that."

Good to know that even some of the most famous people on the planet can't get everything they want, but it is surely only a matter of time before a signed Messi shirt arrives on the steps of the White House.
