Barcelona woke up on Monday to a sanctified Lionel Messi in the centre of the city. The artist Tvboy has portrayed the Argentine as a saint in a mural on Passeig de Gràcia. It is not the first time that the player - named San Lionelus de Barcino by the artist - has been the subject of a mural in the city, as Tvboy once depicted Messi kissing Cristiano Ronaldo.
