The world's best footballer Lionel Messi has shown his new son Thiago to the world for the first time and its fair to say the world liked him.

The photo of the smiling Thiago, along with Messi and his partner Antonella Rocuzzo, has already been liked over a million times and shared by 76,000 people.

The world is clearly eager to get a glimpse of the new Messi, who if he follows in his father's footsteps, will be terrorizing defenders across the world in a matter of years.

Judging from the just the photograph though, it's difficult to work out whether Thiago is left or right footed.
