Lionel Messi breaks fan’s wrist with wayward shot (VIDEO)

Lionel Messi breaks fan’s wrist with wayward shot (VIDEO)
The power of a Lionel Messi shot was on display in Barcelona’s 2-2 draw with Villarreal on Sunday, as a wayward effort from the Argentine broke a female fan’s wrist.

The current Ballon d’Or holder fired a shot at goal in the 15th minute of the La Liga clash, but it flew over the bar and struck a member of the El Madrigal crowd.

The lady, named Raquel, was pictured in agony after copping the blow, and needed the help of stewards as she almost fainted while heading for medical assistance.

Spanish television later caught up with her and revealed that she was in fact a Real Madrid fan. She appeared in good spirits despite her injury.

Barcelona relinquished a two-goal lead against a brave Villarreal side but still have a nine-point lead at the Spanish top flight’s summit.
