A pure gold replica of the Barcelona forward's left foot, valued at $5.25 million, was unveiled Wednesday in Tokyo. The foot was created by Japanese jeweler Ginza Tanaka to commemorate the player's achievements.
''It's exceptional. You can see each line in the foot,'' said Messi's brother, Rodrigo. ''It's an impressive piece of work.'' The jeweler said he cast Messi's foot in Spain at the end of 2012.
