World renowned football commentator Peter Drury delivered yet another poetic commentary performance as Lionel Messi and Argentina overcame France 4-2 on penalties in the World Cup Final.
All eyes were on Messi after the final whistle blew as the entire football world waited in anticipation to see him lift the 18 carat gold trophy.
Using his incredible gift of the gab, the famous wordsmith perfectly encapsulated the moment Messi walked towards his own greatness and "out of the shadow of Maradona", the late Argentinian great with whom he was compared.
"Lionel Messi has conquered his final peak. Lionel Messi has shaken hands with paradise. The little boy from Rosario Santa Fe has judged pitched up in Heaven," said Drury in his inimitable, regal tone.
