The Ballon d’Or 2021 night in Paris proved to be a magical one for Lionel Messi as he lifted a record-extending 7th award. It was undoubtedly a special evening for the Argentine and fans got icing on the cake when they saw Tom Holland, the on-screen Spiderman of Marvel Studios, attending the ceremony. He was notably present there to promote Spider-Man: No Way Home which is set to release on December 16 (in India).
However, Tom had a rather action-packed time in Paris. The British actor made the most out of his opportunity to spend some time with top footballers across the globe as he was seen having some exciting conversations with players like Kylian Mbappe, Robert Lewandowski and many more. However, his meeting with Lionel Messi was something that caught everyone’s attention.
Tom Holland + Lionel Messi = Magic
In a video getting viral on social media, Tom Holland can be seen having a fun chat with Lionel Messi. As soon as the Argentine leaves, it was the actor’s delightful reactions that left everyone in awe. For a moment, the on-screen Spiderman looked like any other fanboy of one of the best footballers in the world – Lionel Messi.

Ain’t nothing like a weekend in Paris: Tom Holland
The British actor also posted a one-minute video on Instagram which summarized his amazing weekend in Paris.

Meanwhile, fans will be eagerly waiting to see both Holland and Messi back in action weaving their magic in their respective fields.
