Lionel Messi ‘held captive’ by Isis jihadi in poster promoting terror at Russia World Cup

A photo of Lionel Messi has been used by Islamic State in a propaganda poster that threatens terror at the Russia World Cup 2018.

The image is believed to have been released by pro-Isis mouthpiece the Wafa Media Foundation and is said to be the latest in a series of sick messages aimed at football fans.

In the propaganda poster, Barcelona star Messi is seen kneeling down wearing an orange jumpsuit – similar to those worn by people held captive in Isis execution videos.
