Lionel Messi awkwardly ignored two presenters on the red carpet at Monday's FIFA The Best awards, made hilarious by the presenter claiming they were being joined by the night's big winner.
The pair of presenters caught the Barcelona forward walking down the red carpet and looked to stop him with one saying ‘here is Lionel Messi about to join us' but the Barca man only wanted to walk and certainly did not join them.
It would potentially look ruder if it wasn't for the absolute comedy of saying he was joining you and then the realisation as one presenter says, “Lionel Messi has walked past.”
Hopefully, for the pair, the FIFA Best Men's Player of the Year winner did come back to do an interview with them later as he had suggested saying ‘later' as he walked past them, suggesting Messi was off somewhere at the time.
