mid­fielder Sam Wood has re­vealed he was once a body-dou­ble – for Barcelona wiz­ard Lionel Messi! It was back in his Non-League days and pro­vided an un­usual ex­pe­ri­ence. The for­mer Brent­ford man, 30, told the BBC: “I did some body dou­bling for Lionel Messi, in­set, in an ad­vert, which not a lot of peo­ple know about. “They flew me out to Spain and put me up in a ho­tel. I did all the stuff and he would come in to do all of the in­ter­views, about 20 yards away. But I’ve also done a few with Cris­tiano Ron­aldo. I think about three ad­verts.”
