Messi statue vandalised in Argentina

A statue of Argentine football star Lionel Messi has been vandalised in the capital, Buenos Aires, reports BBC News.

The bronze statue was chopped off just above the ankles, with the main "body" left lying on the pavement.

It is the second time the statue, which was unveiled in June 2016, has been targeted by vandals. Police said the motive was unclear.
