Lionel Messi’s son, Meteo, went viral for his reaction to seeing his father collect his sixth Ballon d’Or award.
While Messi was on the podium to receive his award, four-year-old Mateo, was seen smiling and laughing on camera, bouncing up and down while his older brother, Tiago, sat virtually motionless in admiration of his father.
