In some major news away from the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, Barcelona have announced that long-time captain and Beijing 2008 gold medallist Lionel Messi will not return to the club.

The crowning achievement of Lionel Messi’s international career remains the gold medal he captured as a 21-year-old at the 2008 Summer Olympics.

Lionel Messi’s first success with Argentina, albeit the U23 side, came at the 2008 Beijing Olympics when the Albiceleste defeated Nigeria 1-0 in the final to win the gold medal.

The Barcelona star had scored two goals in the tournament as La Albiceleste every single match in the competition including a thumping 3-0 win over Brazil in the semifinal to bag the gold.
