Fans often go out of their way to show their favourite footballers how much they mean to them - not many will be able to match climber Dan Zengluobu, though.
The Lionel Messi super-fan posted a photo from the top of Mount Everest (8,848m) as he held an Argentina shirt with the star's name on the back.
His extraordinary exploits did not go unnoticed by the Barcelona supremo as Messi shared Zengluobu's achievement to his 89.5million Facebook followers, thanking and congratulating him.
