    Lionel Messi is a world champion.

    After five tournaments, he finally got his hands on the World Cup. The gold and glory is his (as is a place atop 90min’s greatest footballers of all time list).

    He and his Argentina teammates are now back in Buenos Aires celebrating their coronation, the streets lined with millions of supporters and fans.

    But it’s not just a triumph being celebrated in Argentina. Here’s a look at how those in the world of sport are enjoying Messi’s victory.

    Neymar was heartbroken when Brazil were knocked out of the World Cup at the quarter-final stage (maybe he should have considered taking a penalty in the shootout but whatever).

    Nevertheless, he was happy for his good friend and former teammate Messi.

    Touching of Pele to mention the great Diego Maradona in his own tribute to Messi.

    Yeah, you’re off your nut if you think Cristiano would be wading in. We are of course talking about Brazilian Ronaldo.

    Luis Suarez also posted a screenshot of him FaceTiming Messi with the trophy on his Instagram story. What a flex.

    The most decorated player in the history of football, Dani Alves’s post praising Messi was rather punchy.

    From one World Cup winner at the expense of France to another.

    Short and sweet.

    Antonio Cassano is usually a candid interviewee for all the wrong reasons, but his comments on Messi are really hard to argue with.

    There are historic tweets of James Maddison calling Cristiano Ronaldo the greatest of all time. This is maturity.

    Messi wasn’t teammates with Arturo Vidal for long, but he clearly left a lasting impression.

    Bastian Schweinsteiger finally did it. He finally didn’t jinx the team or player he was cheering on.

    Your move, MJ.

    This picture has nearly as many likes as Roger Federer’s retirement post.

    Muzza woke up ready for war.
