The Argentinian superstar may have lost out to arch rival Cristiano Ronaldo in Monday's Fifa Ballon d'Or awards, but it was his bright burgundy suit that got all the attention in the world's social media.

Monday night's Fifa Ballon d’Or awards in Zurich saw the Barça star outshine (literally) all other guest footballers and managers thanks to his shiny burgundy Dolce & Gabbana three-piece suit.

As soon as the ceremony was over, there were as many parodies of him popping up on Twitter and Facebook as there were imaged of a teary Ronaldo collecting his trophy.
