Lionel Messi is reportedly sleeping on a mattress that is said to remove traces of COVID-19 in four hours.
After making forays into our lives, our jobs, our education, and our travels, the deadly Corona seems to have made way into our sleep. And not into any mortal’s sleep but into the sleeps of ‘Messi’ah himself.
While the entire world has been taking precautionary measures such as wearing masks and using sanitizers, the Argentine magician has taken extra steps to ensure the safety of himself and his family from the dreaded pandemic.
The Heart of the matter
The mattress manufactured by Tec Moon uses a system called ‘Viruclean’ that uses nanoparticles embedded in tissues to sweep 99 per cent of the viruses and harmful bacteria aside.
Depending on the model, the mattress also has certain features like a foot massage to help Messi before an outing on the field.
Lionel Messi’s Barcelona teammate Luis Suarez too has been reported to be using a similar bed in these dangerous times.
The company has Atletico Madrid’s Saul Niguez as a brand ambassador and is also used by Messi’s Argentina teammate Sergio Aguero.
With Champions league fixtures in the fray for Catalans, it would indeed be a disaster if one of their premier players comes down with the virus, and therefore in order to ensure extra protection, the above measures seem extremely important.
It would be a huge blow for Barça if one of the players catch the coronavirus these days, especially if that person is Messi. For that reason, the Argentine sleeps on an anti-coronavirus mattress.

And while all other players at Barcelona, or at other professional clubs across the world, undergo COVID-19 tests on a regular basis, Messi seems to have added another layer of protection for his family.
Reports suggest that the Argentine has brought the special bed to Lisbon with him ahead of the Champions League knockout rounds.
What’s next for Messi and Barcelona-
The six-time Ballon d’Or winner has been in great touch over the last few matches and would aim to be at his imperious best when Barcelona meets Bayern Munich in Champions League quarterfinals.
Bayern Munich is being touted as the favourites to lift the coveted trophy this year and Barcelona would have to play out of their skins to eliminate the Bundesliga Champions. But with their defence in shambles except for Lenglet and Robert Lewandoski being in the form of his life, the entire task may prove to be a bit more than they can chew for the Catalan club.
This season has already been one of the worst for Barcelona in recent times and if they are to have any hopes of salvaging it then they must once again hope for their talisman Messi to fire.
