"Many psychos also know you if you're well-known." Eventually, letting people touch you just isn't worth the risk. Given that Messi is among the most well-known individuals in the globe, the percentage of psychos is as high as it gets for a person. A user said, "People who are far less renowned than Messi have been killed or injured by random people who believe that the world is flat and that famous people are all reptiles.

"This guy runs at full speed, and when people come running toward him, he just walks them away and gives them a calm hug. Another user commented, "I bet this person is expensive as hell, but worth every penny."

You can see he's not the right person to test. His bearing is composed yet commanding. However, he is incredibly quick; his running acceleration is comparable to that of a linebacker, and it appears that he might dispatch multiple attackers at once. "I wouldn't put that guy to the test," another commenter said.
