An eerily realistic sculpture of Argentine midfielder Lionel Messi, made entirely of chocolate, has been presented to the Argentina star for his birthday.  

He turned 31 on Sunday.

A team of five cake artists and sculptors worked for nearly a week to carve Messi in 60 kg of chocolate which will be put on display at a concert in Bronnitsy, a town located some 50 kilometres from near Moscow that is home to Argentina's base during the month-long tournament.

The custom bakery has been in operation for two decades, creating elaborate custom cakes for special occasions. Malkina said many people have ordered Messi-themed cakes before, but with a much smaller sculpture.
