Footballers are among some of the most admired people in the world. Their skill and dedication to bettering themselves always pay off for fans, especially in the biggest games.
While they shine on the field of play and also win over the hearts of critics, it does not prevent them from doing good off the pitch. A typical example could be seen in the case of Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford in his initiative to end child food poverty in England.
Away from Manchester, England to Spain, Barcelona captain Lionel Messi has also joined in on offering good deeds to humanity. The six-time Ballon d’Or winner has taken his charity gesture to a higher level after putting smiles on the faces of 12 individuals.
The Argentine superstar is definitely showing he has more to offer on the pitch as well as off it after teaming up with Israeli company OrCam to help visually-impaired people around the world.
Reports reveal that the tech company has developed ‘MyEye device’ to help people in that category read texts and identify faces.
Messi recently gifted a ten-year-old young Arsenal fan the pair of high-tech £4,200 (N2m) glasses which is capable of allowing him to identify people and also read texts.
A video of the 33-year-old has now surfaced online as he presents the high-quality device to help their vision. The Argentine forward was seen in the video helping the visually-impaired individuals of different ages and gender fix their machines.
He also helped some of them read while giving one of the recipients a hug after recognising him on wearing the device.
Taking to Instagram, the football star said: “I was excited to meet 12 inspiring blind and visually impaired individuals when they used OrCam MyEye for the first time to read a book, recognize the faces of their beloved ones, identify products, and more.
“Beginning today, @orcam_technologies and I are proud to announce a special global offer at OrCam.com/messi.
SunSport reported that the six-time Ballon d’Or winner has now decided to annually gift young people with inspirational stories the £4,200 device.
