Lionel Messi Kissed By Fan Running On Field During Argentina-Sweden Friendly (VIDEO, PHOTOS)

People love Lionel Messi, especially this guy.

Deep into Argentina's friendly against Sweden, a fan sporting a Barcelona jersey ran onto the pitch just to express his adoration.

In the 88th minute, a fan bypassed security and ran toward the four-time FIFA Player of the Year. Messi, to his credit, was very calm and stood there as the man kissed and rubbed his head. After all, Messi is probably used to this kind of treatment.

Having accomplished his goal, the fan allowed security to detain him.
