Lionel Messi was understandably distraught following Argentina’s defeat by France in the last-16 of the World Cup on Saturday.
The Barcelona legend notched an assist on the day, but was unable to inspire a victory, as Les Bleus ran out 4-3 winners over the two-time champions of the tournament.
Angel Di Maria leveled the scores with a wonder strike before Gabriel Mercado latched onto a Messi shot to beat Hugo Lloris in the France goal, and put Argentina in front.
Benjamin Pavard then netted a wondergoal of his own to level the scores once more before an Mbappe double won the match for France.
Sergio Aguero bagged a late consolation, reducing the deficit to a single goal, but it was too little too late for Argentina.
After the match a number of Argentina players burst into tears on the pitch.
The cameras focused on Messi, who looked devastated, but managed to keep it together as players from both teams consoled him.
Paul Pogba was then seen creeping up behind the Barcelona star, and surprising him with a quick hug.
The gesture was short and sweet, and seemingly appreciated by Messi, and was picked up by a number of fans keeping track of the action at home.
