The Argentinian star Lionel Messi commissioned the 24-carat devices for every member of the winning squad and had them delivered to his Parisian apartment on Saturday. It would cost him £175,000 on 35 gold iPhones for his World Cup-winning team and their staff.Each phone has the player’s name, number and the Argentinian logo engraved on it.Last night a source said, Lionel wanted to do something special and blingy to celebrate his proudest moment.
Ben, CEO of iDesign Gold, said: “Lionel is not only the Goat but he’s one of IDESIGN GOLD’s most loyal customers and got in touch with us a couple of months after the World Cup final.”
“He said he wanted a special gift for all the players and staff to celebrate the amazing win but didn’t want the usual gift of watches. So, I suggested gold iPhones inscribed with their names and he loved the idea.”
Argentina triumphed in Qatar last year — with Messi, 35, named Player of the Tournament.Source: The SUN
