Barcelona star Lionel Messi has been hitting the gym along with his son while under self-quarantine at his plush mansion in Barcelona. All LaLiga players have been asked to undergo self-quarantine after cases of coronavirus increased in the country. Spain remains one of the major hotspots to be affected by the pandemic outbreak.
In a video shared by FC Barcelona on their official Twitter handle, Lionel Messi is seen working out in the gym along with his younger son Mateo Messi. The six-time Ballon d’Or winner is seen using dumbbells while his son watches on. Later, the duo appears to be involved in a conversation as well.
