A statue of Argentine football star Lionel Messi has been vandalised in the capital, Buenos Aires.

The bronze statue was chopped off just above the ankles, with the main "body" left lying on the pavement.

It is the second time the statue, which was unveiled in June 2016, has been targeted by vandals.

Police said the motive was unclear.

It has attracted vandals and thieves before, such as in January of this year, when the Messi statue was cut in half at the waist.

Messi will play for Barcelona when they meet Sporting Lisbon in the Champions League tomorrow.
