Lionel Messi shows he's one of the good guys by signing shirts for fans outside Argentina home

Lionel Messi could be forgiven for wanting to spend some time relaxing following his exploits for Argentina at the recent Copa America.

Instead, the star has made a lot of fans very happy by signing autographs for supporters outside his Argentinian residence in the city of Rosario.

At one stage, the three-time Ballon d'Or winner is absolutely swamped with items to sign. Ranging from Barcelona shirts to Argentina jerseys, many objects fall to the ground as fans throw them in his direction.

However, wearing his Argentina team sweatshirt, Messi retrieves every piece of merchandise from the floor before adding his signature and returning it to their owner. What a guy.

Argentina's Copa America success in Brazil saw Messi strengthen his claim as the greatest player of all time.

Messi and company defeated Brazil to land the 34-year-old his first major international trophy.

Meanwhile, Barcelona have issued an update over contract negotiations with Messi.

Messi is technically a free agent after his Barca deal expired at the end of last season.

New Barca president Joan Laporta told AS: "[Messi's renewal] is progressing adequately.

"All the Catalans, Barcelona, Catalunya and the entire football world are happy because Leo won the Copa America. It is very exciting to see the best player in football history get excited about winning a title like this and he made all of us cry with joy.

"He is very happy, we are all happy. I am happy for Leo who has managed [to win the Copa America], together with his teammates, and that Argentina are once again in the elite.

"I am happy for Messi's family, for Argentina, for Barcelona who are recognised, admired and loved for having this bond with Leo."
