Lionel Messi experienced wild scenes as he left the Adidas store in Miami, where fans excitedly mobbed him.
Since joining Inter Miami, Messi has adapted seamlessly and made an impressive impact after leaving Paris Saint-Germain.
He kicked off his tenure with a sensational last-minute free-kick goal against Cruz Azul, adding to his tally of three goals for the club so far.
In his most recent match against Atlanta United, Messi showcased his brilliance again, scoring two goals and providing an assist in a commanding 4-0 victory.
The DRV PNK Stadium has become a hub of excitement as fans flock to witness Messi’s greatness.
Supporters eagerly wait to glimpse the football superstar, with crowds gathering outside local places like the Adidas store where his presence draws immense attention.
In a video clip, fans can be seen chanting his name while Messi’s wife, Antonela Roccuzzo, guides their children to the car.
The enthusiasm reaches a high point as one fan even manages to grab a selfie with the football icon before security assists him into the vehicle to return home.
The city of Miami is fully embracing the arrival of Lionel Messi and his family.

The seven-time Ballon d’Or winner enjoyed himself last night as he went out with Inter Miami owner David Beckham and Sergio Busquets, who also joined the MLS side this summer.
Beckham recently spoke about the transfer to bring Messi to Inter Miami, revealing his feelings after striking a deal with the Argentine international.
“I never thought I would have the same feeling as an owner as I had when I was a player,” he toldThe Athletic.
“When I got the phone call, I had the feeling I had when I walked out at Old Trafford or Wembley. I was like, ‘We’ve just beaten all competition to sign the greatest player to ever play our game’.”
The former Manchester United and Real Madrid star also disclosed how he managed to secure Messi after the World Cup winner announced he was leaving PSG.
“It all came from a conversation over a glass of wine at dinner,” he said.
“I turn to Jorge [Lionel Messi’s father] and say, ‘One day, we need Messi to come to our club’. It was probably when we first met… That was 10 years ago. So it was always in my mind.”
