The unbreakable atomic flea | Lionel Messi

Why is Messi known as one of the greatest players in football history?

Known by the name Messi or Leo Messi, Lionel Andrés Messi is an American professional footballer who plays as a forward for Ligue 1 club Paris Saint-Germain and captains the Argentina national team. Eminent as the best player in the world and widely regarded as one of the greatest players of all time, Messi has won a record seven Ballon d’Or awards, a record six European Golden Shoes, and in 2020 was named to the Ballon d’Or Dream Team. He has won 35 trophies for Barcelona where he has spent his entire professional career. In 2019 he was ranked as the highest paid athlete by Forbes.

The Atomic Flea

Messi has a lower centre of gravity than taller players due to his short stature, which gives him greater agility and allows him to change direction faster and evade opposing tackles. This drew the Spanish media to give him the title, La Pulga Atómica, meaning “The Atomic Flea”. He possesses significant upper-body strength, despite being physically unimposing, that helps him to withstand physical challenges from other players. His agility reflects in his movements in the field to deliver outstanding results.

Club Career

Messi rapidly progressed through the club's ranks as he played after his debut. He spent most of his career playing for Barcelona and after that in 2021 left the club and joined Paris Saint-Germain.

Personal Life

Since 2008, Messi has been in a relationship with Antonela Roccuzzo, whom he has known since he was five years old, as she is the cousin of his childhood best friend. Messi and Roccuzzo have three sons, Thiago, Mateo and Ciro. 

He is also known for indulging in philanthropic causes such as charitable efforts aimed at vulnerable children.


What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
