Lionel Messi has been bringing smiles to the faces of people with his displays on the football pitch for years now. Last night, however, his virtuoso display against Celtic in the Champions League seemed to win over a very special fan — Bollywood king Shah Rukh Khan. The actor was apparently watching the game last night. He took to Twitter to praise Lionel Messi for his brace that gave Barcelona a 2-0 win and passage into the round-of-16 in the competition.

Messi also became the first player in history to score 100 goals for international club competitions like the UEFA Champions League and the FIFA Club World Cup for FC Barcelona.
