With his fan base spreading across the globe and perhaps to other planets, it was not surprising to see Lionel Messi's 30th birthday been celebrated in far away India.

The party was organised in Ichapore province by a number of fans who form part of the Ichapore Argentina Fans Club.

There were a number of images and cakes in honour of the Barça and Argentina No.10.

All the fans have came out on the streets to celebrate Messi's birthday, with the cakes coloured white and sky blue with the number '30' everywhere.  

Despite the distance between them and Messi, it was still an authentic celebration of the player's birthday by his Indian fans. 

As it stands however, Messi's birthday isn't the biggest thing happening to him this month: next week he will marry childhood sweetheart Antonella Roccuzzo in a ceremony in Rosario.

From Bounce Sports, we wish Messi Happy Birthday and of course a blissful married life ahead!
