Iranian man Reza Paratesh enjoys the fame of a world football superstar, albeit without the fortune and footwork to boot.

Paratesh is a spitting image of Lionel Messi, one of the world’s top football stars who captains Argentina and plays for Barcelona in Spain at club level.


Paratesh does not shy away from his looks, instead happily wearing a  Barcelona No 10 Messi shirt and sporting the footballer’s trademark beard.
