Meet The Iranian Lionel Messi Look Alike Everyone Is Talking About


His name is Reza Parastesh and he is 25 years old. He lives in the city of Hamaden in Iran and looks just like Argentinian soccer star Lionel Messi.

Police once took him to the station because so many people in the city of Hamaden wanted to take a picture with him. They charged him with disturbing public peace and order and impounded his car.

Parastesh has a busy schedule these days and have lined up so many media interviews. He has also signed some modelling contracts.

Well, like they say, if you have got it, flaunt it. The looks at least since we are not so sure of his footballing skills.

Try telling the two apart, the fake from the original.
