A Japanese jeweller has created a pure gold sculpture of Lionel Messi’s foot, but is unable to sell it in Japan.

Ginza Tanaka has produced a 3.5 million-pound gold sculpture of Messi’s left foot in tribute to the Argentine forward’s four-consecutive FIFA Ballon d’Or awards as the best player in the world.

But Naoto Mizuki of Ginza Tanaka has conceded it has been hard to find a buyer for the golden replica of the source of so many of Messi’s goals.

“As you can see, this is an exact replica of Mr Lionel Messi’s left foot,” Mizuki said.

“We call it the golden foot and it will cost you 5.25 million US Dollars.

“It’s a little expensive but it’s meant for wealthy people around the world.

“We tried to sell it to a Japanese audience but maybe people from all over the world will be interested in this.”

Ginza Tanaka has also produced Messi’s golden footprint, which costs 63,000 pounds, as well as a mini version of the golden foot; worth 28,000 pounds.
