He might be more used to breaking legs (figuratively speaking, obviously) thanks to his dazzling trickery, but now Lionel Messi can add arm-breaker to an already glittering C.V.
An unlucky fan discovered how much force the Argentine has at his disposal at a match yesterday between Villareal and Barcelona. Messi cut inside off the right wing toward the top of the box and unleashed an explosive left-foot effort that flew over the crossbar and kept rising. A female fan stuck up an arm to protect herself, and the ball struck with enough force to break it. Video after shows her in noticeable pain, and she seems to go into a kind of shock while trying to leave her seat to get medical attention.
Be warned: Watching football from the stands can also be dangerous.
