Wives of famous tennis star Roger Federer and famous actor Patrick Stewart — Mirka Federer and Sunny Ozell respectively were both lured into football by the exceptional talent of Lionel Messi.

According to AZ quotes, Roger confirmed that his wife is not a lover of football, but she watches the one that features Messi. “My wife doesn’t like Football but she watches it just for Messi, he says.”

Famous actor of X-Men Patrick Stewart also confessed that his wife Sunny Ozell 41, is a die-hard fan of the six-time ballon d'Or winner even though she's not interested in football.

In an interview for Cinescondite, Patrick spoke about how he fulfilled his promise of introducing his wife to Leo during an event.

“This hand was in the hand of Lionel Messi on Monday night. Not because I particularly wanted to meet him, but my wife did, he says. Lionel Messi converted her to soccer. She had no interest in this at all until she saw how this man played ball”.

“I told my wife ‘If he’s there, I will do everything in my power to bring the two of you face to face. It was really hard because it was security like you’ve never seen. There was Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Maradona,” said Patrick.

“Then I hit the security wall ‘I’m Patrick Stewart. I’m Patrick Stewart. I couldn’t see Leo. He actually turned over and bent over his seat and he’s quite short. He just vanished behind everybody.

I stood behind him and then he stood up and turned around and we were face to face. He just beamed into my face. I said ‘Senior Messi! Por favor! Mi esposa (my wife)’ and they shook hands”. the actor continued.

“Then I said ‘Can I please take a photograph of you together?’. I took the photograph and his (Messi’s) wife said ‘And I want a photograph with you!’. Stewart concluded. 

If Lionel Messi could draw people who has no love for football to the game, you could imagine the kind of impact he's had on the rest of the world over the years. Pure class!
