We've Already Watched Lionel Messi's New Dance Celebration 18 Times Today
Lionel Messi is not only a joy to watch when the ball is stuck to his feet, but the little magician has a natural rhythm when it comes to dancing, according to his goal celebration against Athletic Bilbao.
In another masterclass from the five-time Ballon d'Or winner, he managed to find the net in the 30th minute with another sumptuous finish.
Messi became the first player in La Liga history to score 25+ league goals in 9 consecutive seasons and to celebrate, he produced a dance move that sent Twitter into meltdown.

It was a first half to remember for the Barcelona man and Ousmane Dembele gifted the forward with a perfectly weighted assist on the half hour mark - just like Messi did against Chelsea in the Champions League on Wednesday night.
We don't think we've ever seen the Argentine dance like this before, but I think we like it. JUST LOOK AT THAT SHIMMY!
That little celebration dance shows Lionel Messi does have some weaknesses.

HT review. On Messi's goal celebration: "Messi, who usually parties like Napoleon Dynamite after a goal, goes Barry White disco!"

Move over Barcelona's latest signing Yerry Mina, who also has a collection of bizarre goal celebrations. The 23-year-old is quite the dancer but Messi wins this time around.
