Lionel Messi takes to the pitch with a real swagger and he certainly flys in style in his state-of-the-art private jet.
The luxury aircraft has been custom-made by an Argentinian company as per Argentine website Doble Amarilla, via Goal.
It's said he has leased the plane as opposed outright purchasing it straight away, but it looks as though he and his family and friends are getting their money's worth.
Of course, the £12 million jet had to have Messi's iconic No.10 printed on the rudder of the plane but he's also got the names of all his family members on the steps that lead onto it.

It features the names of the man himself, his wife, Antonella, and their three children, Thiago, Ciro and Mateo.
The plane, which is a 2004 Gulfstream V model, also contains a kitchen, two bathrooms and 16 seats that can be converted into eight beds if anyone fancies a bit of kip whilst in the air.
Away from the pitch and former Barcelona goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen once revealed what it was like in training with Messi.
When asked if training with the 32-year-old helped him improve, the shot stopper didn't exactly sound convinced.
"Sometimes yes, sometimes not so much." he said. "Messi is Messi. He can turn you into a better 'keeper but at the same time, can make you feel a little inadequate about your abilities."
One thing is for sure, Messi is just as phenomenal on the training ground as he is on game day.
