They say that Barça crosses boundaries. They say that the team is loved and admired around the world. And there was a further example of the truth in that last Friday 6 April.

It was all to do with Alex Ovechkin, who was celebrating his 1,000th game in the North American professional ice hockey league, the NHL.

His club, the Washington Capitals, and his team-mates know just what a huge Barça fan the Russian is, and organised a special surprise for him. A Leo Messi shirt and a trip to Barcelona to watch his favourite club in action.

He has met Barça players in the past. Here are two examples from his social networks of the times he not only got to meet Messi, but Gerard Piqué as well:
