An Iranian student, Reza Parastesh who looks exactly like Barcelona star, Lionel Messi was taken to a police station after too many people wanted pictures with him. Reza Parastesh walks about town in the No.10 jersey and has been nicknamed 'Iranian Messi'.
The police in Hamadan had to impound his car and take him into the station to quell the stir his resemblance to Messi was causing, which prompted too many people stopping him for photos.

When he was released, Parastesh spoke with AFP news and said:

'"Now people really see me as the Iranian Messi and want me to mimic everything he does. When I show up somewhere, people are really shocked. I'm really happy that seeing me makes them happy and this happiness gives me a lot of energy."
