EXTRA TIME

Think Lionel Messi was born in 1987? Maybe a trip to the Netherlands might change your mind...

Tourists in Amsterdam have spotted that a self-portrait by Dutch painter Adriaen van der Werff at the Rijksmuseum looks an awful lot like the Barcelona and Argentina superstar.

Several sightseers have noted the uncanny resemblance between the two in their TripAdvisor reviews of the museum.

It seems safe to say that Messi is an artist both on and off the pitch - that is, when he's not also appearing as other people's shadows...

He gets around, that Leo Messi!
