“Messi has given so much joy over the years and arguably the best ever, so well deserved. Congrats Argentina, well played Brasil. Jogo Bonito. #CopaAmerica,” Google CEO Sundar Pichai wrote.

Pichai had met Messi when he visited the FC Barcelona training facility back in 2017 when he took some time off from the Annual Mobile World Congress as per Goal.com.

The talismanic forward Messi had a brilliant tournament as he scored four goals and gave five assists. Though Colombia’s Luis Diaz also scored four goals, Messi registered more assists and was named the Golden Boot winner.
