File Under: “Awww”
A young fan ran up to greet Lionel Messi as he was getting off Argentina soccer’s team bus in Uruguay on Wednesday … only to get snatched up and dragged away by a security guard.
Messi wasn’t havin’ none of that … ordering the security team to run down the kid and bring him back for a quick meet-and-greet.
The boy looked SUPER sad when he got grabbed … but was all smiles after meeting the FC Barcelona superstar.
In the end, the kid got his shot … and Messi looked like a total hero (instead of a tax cheat).
