Football arch rivals, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo have been spotted 'kissing' in Barcelona days before clashing.
Messi and Ronaldo
An Italian urban artist, Tvboy painted the two Clásico protagonists, Messi and Ronaldo, in a passionate kiss on the streets of Barcelona, in a piece heavily-influenced by Antonio De Felipe.
Paseo de Gràcia in Barcelona became adorned with a curious image; a passionate kiss between Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, just three days before Real Madrid and Barça meet in a potentially league-deciding clash at the Santiago Bernabéu.
The painting was by Tvboy
The painting is the work of urban artist Tvboy, who is known for his controversial pieces. Here, the two La Liga stars embrace in a smooch, in a work entitled ‘Love is blind’.
Tvboy created the street art during the night as Wednesday morphed in to Thursday.
The painting bears a strong resemblance to a piece by graffiti artist Antonio De Felipe, also of the two players kissing, which was exhibited in Madrid in 2015.
