Lionel Messi (35, Argentina)’s social media (SNS) account caught fire.

On the 30th (Korean time), Messi told the story of what happened on Instagram right after the 2022 World Cup in Qatar through the Argentine media ‘Infobae’. Messi started by saying, “I thought many people would like to see me holding the World Cup trophy.”

He continued, “I posted a picture of the World Cup championship ceremony, and it seems that the post spread to people all over the world. Countless comments and direct messages (DM) poured in. I could only read a small portion of the text. I was sent a whopping 1 million DMs, so Instagram temporarily blocked my social media account.”
