Barcelona ace Messi's 'fair play' gesture celebrated

Lionel Messi produced a classy moment in Barcelona's win at Osasuna on Saturday.

The Argentine struck two goals in the 3-0 triumph.

And in one attack produced a wonderful moment of fair play.

Messi was bundled over inside the Osasuna penalty area and from some angles it appeared a spotkick.

But rather than appeal, Messi sprung to his feet and gestured to the ref there was no foul, a gesture being applauded in today's Spanish press.
