Watch: Lionel Messi runs a red light in Miami and narrowly avoids a serious car crash
The World Cup winner left Inter Miami training and almost caused a car crash as he drove away under a police escort.
Lionel Messi has finally been presented as an Inter Miami player alongside his family and will be able to pull on the pink and black shirt for his new club when they take on Cruz Azul in the Leagues Cup which is right around the corner.
The DRV PNK Stadium will be his home and the fans have already committed to making him feel as welcome as possible, with fan groups now primed to create an atmosphere that is worthy of the so-called GOAT.
But even Lionel Messi, the man who has conquered the game of football and made it look easy, is an idol for millions of people all across the world, can have a slip up and remind us that he is made of skin and bones. The short clip shows the 36-year-old driving his car out of training at the Inter Miami complex under a police escort, where he seems to jump a red light and almost cause a serious crash. It’s not a great look for the man who had recently further enamoured fans by being caught shopping at a Publix doing his weekly shop.
The victim was identified as 23-year-old Russian Vladimir Popov, with reports stating that the shark injured two other tourists.
A woman on an American Airlines flight made a scene ahead of takeoff before leaving the plane, claiming that a passenger in the back “isn’t real”.
