- The picture went viral on Instagram ahead of the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar
- American rappers Drake and J Cole have recreated the picture in a music video
American rappers Drake and J Cole showed they are football followers after recreating one of football's most iconic photos of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo in a music video.
Messi and Ronaldo have been the face of football for about 15 years and won a combined 13 Ballon d'Ors between them, with the Argentine having the upper hand with eight.
They have been pictured together at events but have hardly done things together due to their schedule and the level of their rivalry, which doesn't permit it.
American portrait photographer Annie Leibovitz, who took the shot, later disclosed that both players were photographed differently and merged into one photo.

American rappers Drake and J Cole have recreated the iconic photo in the music video of First Person Shooter, which was released on YouTube days ago.
Per Pitchfork, it was the first video off their chart-topping For All the Dogs collaboration, and the rappers engaged in a series of head-to-head activities in the video, including ping pong.
Football fans have engaged each other on the scene; while many applauded, others trolled with the usual catchphrase, “he thinks he's him.”
