Lionel Messi's left foot is officially golden
Lionel Messi's left foot is considered very special, as it is with this foot he dribbles past the players, bamboozling defenders and in the process scoring goals not only for his club, Barcelona but also his native country, Argentina.

As a matter of respect for the footballer, a Japanese jeweller, Ginza Tanaka has manufactured a pure gold replica of Messi's left foot, which is valued at $ 5.3 million. The left foot helped Messi to win the coveted Ballon d'Or award four times in a row.

It has been reported by the Telegraph that the jeweller went all the way to Spain in 2012 to take the cast of his foot. And how well has the original piece come out – with the blood vessels also in view making it look amazing. Everyone was left in awe when the golden foot was unveiled yesterday, 6 March 2013 in Tokyo.

The golden left foot, which weighs 25kg, 25cm tall and 28cm wide is said to go on sale today. But, along with this, Messi's footprint on a solid gold plate would also go on sale. The profits from these sales is going to be used for some good purpose, as the money is going to be used to help those children through the Messi foundation who were affected by the earthquake and tsunami in Japan two years ago.

Messi has truly deserved all the accolades of winning prestigious individual awards, medals etc and this golden foot of his as well. The player has been a sensation, especially for Barcelona, where he has been scoring goals on a regular basis. He has scored more than 200 goals for the Spanish giants. No doubt, he is one of the best players that have ever played the beautiful game of football.
