Lionel Messi and his wife Antonela Rocuzzo smile for the
camera during a day out at the beach in a never-before-
seen photo taken when the Barcelona star was just ten.
The touching picture shows the childhood sweethearts
enjoying themselves at Atlantic holiday resort Punta
Mogotes, nearly two decades before they tied the knot.
The photo, showing the pair with other children including
one of Messi’s team-mates, was taken in January 1998.
Messi was playing in a youth football tournament in the
nearby city of Balcarce.
