A pure gold replica of Lionel Messi’s left foot valued at $5.25 million, was unveiled in Tokyo. The 25-kilogramme statue, was created by renowned Japanese jeweler Ginza Tanaka to commemorate the player’s achievements. Tanaka is also offering a “Golden Foot Plate” for the convenient price of $94,500 (limited to 50 pieces) and a miniature version of the solid gold foot that is available for $42,000 (limited to 100 pieces). Part of the profits from the sale will go to Messi’s foundation, which in turn will go to support children in areas affected by the earthquake and tsunami disaster that hit Japan two years ago.
