Lionel Messi was aggressively jumped upon after the fulltime whistle at Granada on Saturday night by a couple of super excited kids.
After having managed to get onto the pitch after the Catalans chalked up a 2-1 win on the road, two young teenagers made a beeline straight for Messi and they began hugging him with a little too much power.
Despite their tender years, the kids were filmed almost lifting Messi off the ground as they appeared to want to kart the Barca star off the turf with them.
Within a short space of time security officials prised the youngsters off the Balon d’Or winner, however by that point the children were already beyond ecstatic at having touched their footballing idol.
Watch the two kids get physical with Lionel Messi below.
