Lionel Messi shares gigantic cake with adoring fans outside New Jersey hotel

Lionel Messi was serenaded by Argentina fans on Monday as he turned 37, while sharing a massive birthday cake with fans.

Messi celebrated his birthday while away at the Copa America, and was gifted a cake by his team-mates on Monday. He was also given a giant bottle of Argentine wine by Inter Miami co-owner David Beckham, and fans trekked out to the Argentina team hotel in New Jersey to serenade their hero, who then returned the favour by sharing his birthday cake.

Messi popped his head out of a window to greet his supporters and thanked his fans with a heartfelt Instagram message.

He wrote: “Thank you so much for all the greetings and congratulations!! 😃 Another year that coincides with my birthday being with the National Team… So celebrating a little bit more and we keep getting ready for our next game. Hugs!”

Messi played through an injury during Argentina’s 1-0 win over Chile, as his side secured qualification to the knockout rounds, and he could subsequently be rested against Peru this weekend.
