Lionel Messi gifts 35 gold iPhone 14 Pros to World Cup-winning teammates and staff
Argentina won the last FIFA World Cup, becoming world champions for the first time since 1986 with the help of Lionel Messi, and the team captain confirmed his deity status among Argentines.
The player decided to celebrate his teammates and staff who were part of the campaign in Qatar in an unusual way. He gave them 35 personalized gold iPhone 14 Pro phones.
Each unit was custom made with the person’s name, number, the logo of the Argentine Football Association (AFA – Asociacion del Futbol Argentino) and the logo of manufacturing partner iDesign Gold.
The founder of the company posed with Lionel Messi and also posted an Instagram story in which he revealed that each device came in a smart box with a certificate of authenticity and that the iPhone 14 Pro is a genuine product with a 24-carat gold plate on it . the back.
The phone is made by removing the original panel and replacing it with the precious metal plate. There’s no word which memory option Messi went for, but it hardly matters when the 7-time Ballon d’Or and two-time World Cup Golden Ball winner is giving you a golden iPhone.
Such a gift is truly priceless, but a custom iPhone 14 Pro 1TB from iDesign Gold costs £4,000, which means Lionel Messi spent £140,000 (approx. $170,000/€160,000) for this memorable gift.
