Lionel Messi ordered gold iPhones for Argentina’s World Cup-winning squad and staff, with the custom-made devices reportedly worth £175,000, reports goal.com.
The Albiceleste emerged victorious at Qatar 2022, with Messi putting in another collection of talismanic displays as captain.
To recognise that achievement, Paris Saint-Germain superstar Messi has teamed up with iDesign Gold to treat all of his teammates and Argentina’s coaching staff to 24-carat Apple devices – with a serious shopping haul successfully delivered to the French capital.
Ben Lyons, CEO of iDesign Gold, told The Sun: “Lionel is not only the Goat but he’s one of iDesign Gold’s most loyal customers and got in touch with us a couple of months after the World Cup final. He said he wanted a special gift for all the players and staff to celebrate the amazing win but didn’t want the usual gift of watches. So, I suggested gold iPhones inscribed with their names, and he loved the idea.”
