Lionel Messi burst into laughter when he was approached by a fan who was a dead ringer for former Brazil hero Ronaldinho.

Argentina held an open training session yesterday and some fans managed to evade security and gain access to the pitch and Messi.

The fan himself has confirmed that Messi thought for a second that he was the real Ronaldinho.

The lookalike’s name is Robinson Oliveira, and afterwards he told Goal.com: "When he saw me he was shocked because he thought I was the real Ronaldinho and he told me that I didn’t need to run on the pitch to see him.

”What are you doing running on here to see me?’ When he held my hand, I went down on my knees [and bowed]. It was so emotional.”
