Argentina’s World Cup winning captain Lionel Messi has revealed having his Instagram account ‘blocked’ after receiving ‘a million messages’ after La Albiceleste’s triumph in Qatar.
Messi won the Golden Ball and Silver Boot awards in the tournament after guiding his country to their first World Cup win since 1986.
The win completed the 35-year-old’s trophy cabinet after a prolific career and led to many labelling him the greatest footballer of all time.

He has since revealed having his social media overwhelmed after the victory.
‘My Instagram was blocked for a few days because of the amount of messages I received after winning the World Cup,’ the PSG star told Urbana Play in quotes carried by ESPN.
He also revealed running his Instagram on his own, and not using ‘any company or other person’ to manage posts.
The 35-year-old is believed to have had doubts over his future at PSG since the tournament
It came as Messi gave his first interview since returning from Qatar, which also saw him open up about how his ‘family suffered more than him’ during his previous failures with the national team.
The Argentine legend has scored just once since returning from the World Cup, but has still bagged 13 goals in 21 games for PSG this season.
He was previously expected to pen a new deal with the French Giants, but recent reports have suggested he is now unsure about resigning after interest from his former club Barcelona as well as Inter Miami and multiple Saudi clubs.
According to Marca, Messi has become less keen on PSG since the World Cup, which has sparked a ‘change of mentality’ in the forward – who now values ‘other things for the immediate future’.
It also comes amid a poor run of form for Christopher Galtier’s side that has seen them take just one point from their last four league games, reducing their lead at the top of Ligue 1 to just three points.
