Lionel Messi: “The King Piece”

Set between the future and our ancient past lies the Middle Ages when Kings ruled kingdoms. Chiefly among their gamesmanship rose the game of chess. Harken back to those times and Messi would have reigned supreme in the world of sport, renowned by King’s courts and legions of fans.
