Lionel Messi Throws Up, Then Scores During Barcelona-Real Madrid Match (VIDEO)

Well it's official: Nothing can stop Lionel Messi...not even his own stomach.

During a match between Barcelona and Real Madrid on Sunday, Messi, the reigning FIFA player of the year, appeared to get a little bit queasy on the pitch. The Barcelona star apparently unloaded his pre-game meal right in the middle of Santiago Bernabéu Stadium during play.

Most guys might take the rest of the day off after this, but all Messi did was net a fantastic goal that proved to be crucial in the 2-2 draw.

The fantastic play appeared even better once all the circumstances surrounding it came to light, and proved once again that in the world of soccer, there's Lionel Messi, and there's everyone else.
