MESSI’S LEFT FOOT IS PURE GOLD


A Japanese jeweler is selling a solid gold
replica of soccer star Lionel Messi’s left foot
— the one that has made the Argentine star
the best player on the planet.
But it will cost you: The asking price for the
55-pound statue is $5.25 million.
The detailed golden foot — the statue is
complete with blood vessels and swirls of
skin on the bottom of the toes — was
created by Tokyo-based jeweler Ginza
Tanaka to celebrate Messi’s unprecedented
Ballon d’Or award in January.
Messi is the only player in history to win
the FIFA player of the year trophy four
times — and his wins came in consecutive
years.
The company marketing the golden cast
said a number of miniature versions of the
statue as well as a solid gold plate of the
Barcelona FC frontman’s footprint will also
be for sale.
Part of the profits from the sales will go to
the player’s charity, the Leo Messi
Foundation, to help victims of the
earthquake and tsunami that struck Japan
two years ago.
