Two soccer legends. Like Federer and Nadal in the world of tennis, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi have been legendary rivals for years. Opponents of course, but above all champions who respect each other and seem to like each other. And when the two monsters of recent years on the football planet (12 Golden Balls between them since 2008!) are brought together in a photo, the magic happens.
In this shot, we find Messi and Ronaldo face to face in a game of chess. This is a photo taken for an advertisement for the luxury brand Louis Vuitton. And as the site of the Parisianin just 24 hours, the photo has become the third most “liked” in Instagram history.
For the record, this photo signed Annie Leibovitz is a montage. Le Parisien explains that the two men, who are participating in the World Cup in Qatar with Argentina and Portugal, did not pose together.
