A bronze statue of Lionel Messi has been chopped in half in a bizarre act of vandalism.
The sculpture was only unveiled in Buenos Aires in June but is now in need of urgent repair after the head, arms and torso were removed.
The statue is one of several tributes to Argentinian sports stars along Glory Street in the country’s capital.
