Argentina's superstar soccer player Lionel Messi was spotted driving a bright pink theme park car during his family trip to Disneyland Paris in France.

The Inter Miami player was recently back in Europe to collect the eighth Ballon d’Or of his remarkable career, goal.com reported.

During his vacation, which came at the end of his debut campaign in MLS, Messi along with his family visited Disneyland Paris.

He took his young family along for a fun-filled day out, with the Argentine superstar happy to play the doting dad despite forever operating under the brightest of spotlights.

An eagle-eyed fan spotted the 2022 World Cup winner driving the colourful sports car around the track and shared the video on his X handle, previously known as Twitter.

Will Messi return to Barcelona?

Last week, former Barcelona striker Sergio 'Kun' Agüero, in an exclusive interview with AS, shared insights into the current state of FC Barcelona, expressing optimism about Messi's potential return and backing Xavi Hernandez despite the club's recent challenges.

Talking about Messi, Agüero lauded him as the "best player of all time" and discussed Messi's enduring love for Barcelona. Despite Messi's departure and speculations about his return, Agüero noted that Messi remains deeply identified with the club and the city.

While the specifics of a potential return were not discussed, Agüero suggested that "it's a matter of time" before Messi reunites with Barcelona.
