Lionel Messi’s life will be made into a show by Cirque du Soleil and PopArt Music in association with Sony Music, starting in 2019.

“It feels both crazy and incredible that Cirque du Soleil will create a show based on my life, my passion, my sport,” the FC Barcelona star was quoted as saying by the announcement. “Cirque du Soleil is a family favorite of ours. I have no doubt this show will amaze people as their shows always do.”

To coincide with the announcement, a video of Messi juggling a clown’s nose while wearing a Cirque de Soleil t-shirt was released.
