Lionel Messi was born into a working-class family in Rosario, Argentina, on 24 June 1987. His dad was a steelworker in a factory, and his mother was a cleaner. From an early age he started to play, and his talent became obvious soon. However, Messi’s growth hormone deficiency was diagnosed at 11 years of age.
