Lionel Messi was allowed to miss Barcelona training on Monday for "personal reasons".

A day later, however, his girlfriend Antonella Roccuzzo had posted a video to her Instagram page that showed Messi on a sled with their son Thiago, having a great time.

It is completely unclear whether the two incidents are linked, of course (I'll just repeat that for the sake of the lawyers...).

"Messi hasn't trained today, with the permission of the club, due to personal reasons," Barca said in a statement on Monday.
