Lionel Messi returns the favor by giving Steph Curry a Barcelona #10 shirt

In December, Lionel Messi was sent a special present by Steph Curry of the NBA's Golden State Warriors. A #30 jersey of his in honor of Messi reaching 30 million Instagram followers.

Now that Curry has reached the 10 million milestone, Messi is a man of his word:

Hello "Maestro" @stephencurry30, well as I told you, here I’m sending you my jersey with the number 10. It’s an honour that you have my jersey and it’s a pleasure to see you playing. I hope to see you playing for a many more years and I wish you all the success. Big hug!

It's still amazing to see two of the best and most recognizable athletes in the world, thousands of miles apart, have this type of friendship. Ah, the power of social media.
