Sports - Soccer Legend Lionel Messi Makes It Into Spanish Language

Footballing legend Leo Messi has scored a spot in the Spanish language after a dictionary added a word in his honour.
The word, imessionante, means several things - either, the perfect way to play football or an unlimited ability to self-improve, or just a description of "the best player of all time".

There are several judges of whether a player can be considered one of the greats. Awards, statues, titles and accolades are some, but has any other player made it into the dictionary?

Unusually for Messi though, this honour is not a first - earlier this season Zlatan Ibrahimovic made it into the Swedish dictionary with the verb Zlataner, meaning "to dominate".
