Ever wondered just how Lionel Messi manages to be so completely, extraordinarily, brilliant at football? Well the Argentine has now explained and the answer is simple - practice.

The Barcelona ace is currently off around the world having been on promotional duty in China before heading to Australia to play for Argentina against Brazil.

However, he has still found time to post a video on Facebook of himself as a child doing keepy-ups with a tennis ball with the caption ‘the secret is in the practice’.

El secreto está en la práctica. - Practice is the secret.

El secreto está en la práctica. Practice is the secret.

The video has gone down a storm with over 1.1 million views already as the little genius shows us another glimpse of his ridiculous talent.
