Messi's $5.25 million Golden left foot

Argentina's Lionel Messi's left foot was recreated in pure gold by Japanese jeweler Ginza Tanaka to commemorate the player's achievements.

It is expected to fetch $5.25 million.

Messi won an unprecedented fourth consecutive Ballon d’Or at a FIFA gala in Zurich in January, adding yet another record to his stellar list of achievements.

Budget shoppers can get a 25-kilogram golden foot comprised of 25 1kg bars from the Perth mint tied together with string for around $ 1.28m US today.
