After the match, a young fan broke onto the pitch and made a beeline for Messi, who was beginning to walk back to the tunnel.

But the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner’s bodyguard stopped him in his tracks.

Yassine Chueko, the former US soldier personally selected by Inter Miami co-owner David Beckham to protect his star player, then allowed the young fan to take a picture with Messi before escorting him off the field.

Fans took to social media to react to the heartwarming moment, with one person tweeting: “Awww! A good bodyguard there!”
