Would Ronaldo do this?

This speaks volumes about the character of Lionel Messi.

We already know he’s one of the greatest players ever to grace to beautiful game.

But this one act of sportsmanship shows what kind of man he is too.

It happened as strike partner Luis Suarez scored his 20th-minute goal for Barcelona against Roma in the Champions League.

But instead of going to celebrate with the Uruguayan forward, Messi headed over the help an opposing player who was down injured.

Massive respect.
