Lionel Messi’s son in cute ‘Fortnite celebration’ moment with Antoine Griezmann

Lionel Messi’s youngest son Mateo put on an adorable display as he copied Antoine Griezmann’s Fortnite celebration.

The Barcelona captain suffered a second loss in four games, falling 2-0 to Valencia on Saturday.

It came just three days after beating Ibiza 2-1 in the Copa del Rey.

The Argentine’s family regularly travel to watch the forward play.

Footage has emerged, though, of second-youngest son Mateo showing his appreciation for team-mate Griezmann.

In the clip, the squad are on their private plane to Paris for the Ballon D’Or awards last month.

Messi is sitting with wife Antonella Roccuzzo while Mateo, who is four years old, sits drawing on his own.

And the Frenchman is sitting in the next row of seats, joining Mateo with his famous celebration.

He smiles along as Messi’s son continues to enjoy himself.
