Details about Lionel Messi orders 35 gold iPhones for Argentina’s team and staff costing Rs 1.73 crore
According to The Sun, the distinctive gold devices are etched with each player’s name, jersey number, and the Argentinian insignia. According to the story, Messi had the phones brought to his apartment over the weekend. Argentina defeated France to win the FIFA World Cup 2022, and this was Messi’s first world cup trophy.
According to the publication’s source, Messi planned to do something “special and blingy” to commemorate the occasion. “He contacted entrepreneur Ben Lyons, and they collaborated on the design,” the publication’s source claimed.
“Lionel is not only the Goat, but he’s one of IDESIGN GOLD’s most devoted customers and got in touch with us a couple of months after the World Cup final,” said Ben, CEO of iDesign Gold. He stated that he wanted a special gift for all of the players and staff to commemorate the incredible accomplishment, but he did not want the typical gift of watches. So I suggested gold iPhones with their names engraved on them, and he loved the idea.”
Messi’s gold iPhone 14 was given to each team member and support staff member. The official Instagram account of iDesign Gold tweeted a photo of Messi getting the iPhones as well as the phone’s design.
“It was an honour to deliver 35 gold iphone 14 to @leomessi for his team mates & staff as a gift for winning the world cup final,” the caption stated.
