Messi funds hometown sports centre

Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi has donated one million pesos ($A194,400) to finance the refurbishment of a sports centre in a rundown area of his hometown, Rosario.

"Rebuilding the sports centre will benefit thousands of people in the area," town mayor Rolando Dal Lago said.

Messi, the winner of a record four successive Ballon d'Or awards, has a foundation in Rosario.

The player's stellar career started at Rosario club Newell's Old Boys when he was 13 before he left for Spain.
