Lionel Messi can do virtually everything on a football pitch.
He's an unbelievably prolific goal-scorer, a creative force who consistently lays goals on a plate for his teammates, he's a wizard from set-piece scenarios.
But if you conjure an image of Messi in your imagination, it's likely that the great man has the ball at his feet as he weaves past his markers, slaloming beyond one then two then three. Dribbling is very much a hallmark Lionel Messi's game.
And the numbers back that up, with Messi completing 1010 more dribbles than his closest rival in that statistical department in Spain's top-flight since 2010.
