Argentina professional footballer, Lionel Messi has surprised his Argentina’s winning squad with golden IPhone 14S. He bought gold iPhones for each player and staff of Argentina’s 2022 World Cup-winning team.

Messi teamed up with IDESIGN GOLD to reward his teammates and coaching staff for their conquering exploits in Qatar last year.
The iPhones are plated with 24-carat gold, while each player’s name and shirt number are also customized on it. The CEO of iDesign Gold, Ben Lyons, and Messi asked him to deliver something to his teammates after their World Cup triumph.
“Lionel is not only the Goat but he’s one of IDESIGN GOLD’s most loyal customers and got in touch with us a couple of months after the World Cup final,” he told The Sun.
“He said he wanted a special gift for all the players and staff to celebrate the amazing win but didn’t want the usual gift of watches, So, I suggested gold iPhones inscribed with their manes, and he loved the idea”.
