OTHER than the Bernabeu, Lionel Messi is adored by fans pretty much everywhere he goes.

But despite the love he has received over the years, Messi doesn’t seem to be used to it.

Footage has emerged on Twitter of Messi standing by the corner flag looking into the crowd during the French Super Cup clash in Israel last month.

As he gazed into the stands, supporters chanted “Messi, Messi, Messi!” back at him.

The 35-year-old superstar didn’t know quite what to do, waving shyly and giving a quick thumbs up to the fans before switching his attention back to the game.

Even the way he stood appeared awkward, as if he was embarrassed by the adulation.

Fans on social media were left loving him even more following the heartwarming interaction, with one writing: “He is so shy.”

Another joked: “I hate how shy Messi is for real, he could’ve given us some little dance moves.”

A third said: “How can anyone hate this guy. That pose when he joins hands, looks like a little kid.”

While another fan suggested: “He doesn’t know how massive he is.”

Luckily for PSG, Messi wasn’t too overwhelmed by the adulation.

He opened his goal tally for the season with a first half strike in an easy 4-0 win over Nantes.

And Messi looks like he means business this campaign after a mixed first term in Paris.

The Argentinian ace followed up his Super Cup strike with a brace, including an outrageous overhead kick, in the 5-0 thrashing over Clermont on Saturday.
