Lionel Messi has just posted a defiant message on his Instagram account as part of a Gatorade ad which promotes the return of sports after football took a pause once the outbreak of coronavirus shook the world.

“Let’s take the opportunity to continue training, to refuel, to continue striving, and give our best. We will return to the pitch, and give it everything,” Messi wrote.

His message is part of the popular sports drink’s #MakeDaysCount campaign, which included a linked video of Messi playing and training, with a voice over saying he would return to the pitch stronger and more motivated than ever.
