Football legends Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo very nearly broke the internet on the eve of the 2022 FIFA World Cup scheduled to happen in Qatar as the two of them came together for the first time ever as part of an advertising campaign.

The Louis Vuitton advertisement featured Ronaldo and Messi playing chess in an iconic image captured by American photographer Annie Leibovitz. “Victory is a State of Mind,” both the footballers captioned their respective posts on Instagram alongside the picture, each of which garnered over 30 million likes. “In addition to a long tradition of crafting trunks for the world’s most coveted sporting trophies, the Maison celebrates two of the most talented football players today,” Louis Vuitton mentioned in their post.

Reacting to Ronaldo’s post, former Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli wrote, “What a picture,” along with a fire emoji and an applause emoji. Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are considered to be two of the greatest sportspersons of the generation, having won five and seven Ballon d’Or’s, respectively.
