Lionel Messi bought Argentina’s World Cup-winning team and staff gold iPhones for £175,000. Messi led the Albiceleste to victory with another epic performance.
The seven-time Ballon d’Or winner, who most recently earned the FIFA Best Men’s Player of the Year award, finally received the one-team honor he sought when Argentina upset France in one of the most exciting World Cup finals in December.
To commemorate the event, PSG superstar Lionel Messi worked with IDESIGN GOLD to deliver a sizable shopping haul to Paris along with 24-carat Apple gadgets to each of his colleagues and the Argentina coaching staff.
Lionel is not only the Goat, but also one of iDesign Gold’s most devoted customers who contacted us a few months after the World Cup final, according to Ben Lyons, CEO of the company.
He claimed he didn’t want the customary watch gift and instead wanted something special for all the players and staff to celebrate the incredible victory. He embraced the idea when I suggested giving them gold iPhones with their names engraved on them.
Messi was given the Golden Ball at the 2022 World Cup, which recognizes the best player in the competition. At 35 years old, he is still an inspiration to those around him and has millions of devoted fans across the world.
In addition, Messi recently received his second consecutive FIFA Men’s Player of the Year award. Messi, 35, took up the prize once more for leading Argentina to their third World Cup triumph with seven goals in the competition. To earn the prize, Messi defeated rivals Kylian Mbappe of PSG and Karim Benzema of Real Madrid.
