Lionel Messi poses in his pants for Dolce and Gabbana

Lionel Messi is probably the finest player of the past 20 years. He can turn matches like nobody else and do things with a football that other players could only dream of.

And yet it’s safe to say that he doesn’t wear the ‘I’m an incredible footballer’ look quite as well as some of his contemporaries.

That down-to-earth persona is one of his most endearing features… but it also means that when he poses in his underpants for a photoshoot, he doesn’t quite muster that David Beckham smoulder.

Almost inevitably, it’s a good cause that has got Messi stripped down to his Y-fronts. The Barcelona star was photographed by Domenico Dolce, of Dolce and Gabbana, for a new photobook to raise money for the Leo Messi Foundation, which helps children with congenital nevus and infantile melanoma.

The book will be accompanied by a calendar and a collection of t-shirts (though we hope the pants shot hasn’t made it to a t-shirt).
