Barcelona have given fans a chance to watch a training session through the eyes of arguably the greatest player to ever grace the game - Lionel Messi.

The striking footage was taken from a Wednesday training session and was recorded by strapping an action camera to the Argentinian maestro's head.

In the video posted on Barcelona's Twitter account, Messi can be seen scoring goals, participating in a rondo, kicking a ball at a target, signing autographs for fans, and chatting with teammate Luis Suarez.

Despite a famous eye for goal, Messi can even be seen missing a couple of easy chances which are saved by 'keeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen.
