Tiny Argentine gets boozed up for Barca celebrations

The Barcelona team arrived back at the Nou Camp with the latest addition to their trophy collection and quite a fiesta ensued! Most of the squad looked like they might keel over at any given time, but nobody was quite as drunk as Lionel Messi.

Dressed up as some sort of hip-hop garden gnome, Messi refused to leave the top-deck of a double-decker when his team-mates got off as he was still busy singing and dancing. Back in the stadium, the TV director tried to cut-away before his antics got too hilarious. You can see him in the video above gurning along to one-in-three words of whatever song he is trying to sing. He then hitches a lift from Eidur Gudjohnsen, which looks set to end in tears/a broken collarbone.

Messi then took the microphone to make a speech. While we are not 100 per cent sure what he is saying, his level of intoxication is quite clear (as is Andres Iniesta’s!) and his words seem to have his team-mates laughing and squirming in equal measures!

More footage – including fun and games with giant inflatable lollipops – when we get it.

    Good man, he’s worked hard all season now he’s enjoying the victories in the right way. After a few bevies he does seem to adopt a hip-hop swagger.
