VIDEO: Lionel Messi boots ball 60 feet in air, easily controls on first touch

Okay, I don’t speak Japanese and I have no clue why Lionel Messi is on a Japanese game show but here he is displaying his inhuman first touch. Messi kicks a ball 60 feet straight up and controls it once again. Messi not only does this once, but he does it twice, and still keeps the ball from hitting the ground. Simply unreal.
