Lionel Messi is using a £900 mattress that “kills Covid-19” and protects the Barcelona star from the disease.
The Barcelona captain is preparing to lead his side in their Champions League quarter-final against Bayern Munich on Friday.
It will be played in front of empty seats at the Estadio da Luz is Lisbon, Portugal, as supporters are still not allowed at games due to the disease.
There are concerns in Europe that Covid-19 is back on the rise, with Britain putting plans into place to stop it spreading across the border.
But reports from Spain have shown how Messi is combatting the disease in his sleep.
It boasts a system, called “Viruclean”, that removes traces of Covid-19 from the bed if an infected person sleeps on it.
Nanoparticles in the tissue material of the £900 mattress wipe away 99 per cent of viruses of bacteria to achieve this.
And Messi can even get his skilful feet, which have helped the 33-year-old to 634 goals in 730 appearances, massaged by the bed.
It comes as the forward has been holding nothing back in his latest team talks at Barcelona, with an X-rated rant in the 3-1 win against Napoli caught on camera.
But the 33-year-old’s time at the Nou Camp could be coming to an end as he is set to be offered a £235m deal by Inter Milan
