(Video) Lionel Messi destroys the 10-touch toilet paper challenge after being nominated by ex-Barca teammate Xavi

Leo Messi shows how good his ball control skills are, with a roll of toilet paper!

There have been a variety of ways by which the famous football personalities are spending their time off the pitch in isolation at home currently.

The toilet roll challenge has been the new thing amongst the footballers under the new #StayAtHome hashtag trending on social media, amid the coronavirus outbreak.

The rules of toilet paper challenge are simple, one has to try to juggle the toilet paper like a football trying to get 10 touches in a row before the roll touches the ground.

Barcelona star Lionel Messi joined the fun as he took on the challenge himself and boy, did he do it.

Showing a telepathic communication with the roll at his feet, Messi swiftly broke the 10-touch barrier and looked as if he could continue for ages if he wanted to –

Barcelona’s Riqui Puig appears to have started this craze, which some people even called the ’10-touch toilet paper challenge’. He uploaded a video of himself juggling a roll of toilet paper on his Instagram and quickly the video did crazy numbers.

From there on this soon became a trend as this challenge was not only tried by footballers but also by other professional athletes and fans as well.

Having already smashed the toilet roll challenge with a bang, Messi has nominated his Barcelona and Argentina team-mates Jordi Alba, Luis Suarez and Sergio Aguero to join in, although, we doubt they would be able to do any better than the best in the world himself.
