Messi made history as first ever athlete to win the Laureus World Sportsman of the Year

Lionel Messi, the Argentine genius, delivered an emotional speech after becoming the first athlete to win both the Laureus World Sportsman of the Year and the Laureus World Team of the Year Awards in the same year.

The PSG star was crowned 2023 Laureus World Sportsman of the Year, while Argentina was awarded 2023 Laureus World Team of the Year.

At the award event in Paris on Monday, Argentina’s 2022 World Cup winning captain accepted both his and his team’s honor.

Despite his club success, Messi remembered his sad experience with the Argentine national team in his acceptance speech.

He stated that winning the World Cup with Argentina was his greatest ambition.

“It’s nice to receive this kind of recognition, and this year I was fortunate to fulfill a great dream,” he remarked.

“I had many joys with Barcelona and many sorrows with the national team, but I never stopped.”
