The Iranian student, who gained fame due to the external resemblance to the attacker of FC Barcelona and Argentina’s Lionel Messi, was detained by the Iranian police and taken to the police station.
The incident occurred in the city of Hamadan: there were so many people wishing to make a street self with Reza Parastes that the police found the incident to be a violation of public order.
The police arrested a car from a Messi double, and he was taken to the station himself.
25-year-old Reza Parastes has become famous several months ago, when he was photographed in a T-shirt of “Barcelona” under number 10.
The photo fell into the net and made the student very popular. He began to cut his hair and take care of his beard in the manner of the famous Argentinean.
“Now people think of me as an Iranian Messi and they want me to imitate all his gestures and manners.” My appearance in public is very surprising, “Parastes told in an interview with France Press.
“I’m happy that this gives people joy, and the realization of this gives me a vigorous charge of energy,” the football player’s double added.
Now Reza Parastes has no rebound from the reporters, he signed several contracts with modeling agencies and even began to master the complex tricks of playing football in order to fully conform to the image of Messi.
