Messi puts on a show at Barcelona training

Lionel Messi was in a relaxed mood at Barcelona's Tuesday training session, which must have come as bad news for the rest of his teammates.

Indeed, the Argentinian star put on a wonderful solo display of his sublime touch, skill and ball control as he generally set about making mincemeat of his pals without breaking sweat.

Spare a thought for poor Marc-Andre ter Stegen.

Given that he's forced to train against Messi every single day, it's a wonder that the German goalkeeper's confidence hasn't been completely torn to shreds by this point.
