Lionel, Matteo and Thiago Messi give their Dogue de Bordeaux Hulk quite the workout.

Barcelona forward Lionel Messi is yet to join up with his teammates on preseason, having led Argentina to the Copa America semifinals earlier this summer. 

And the maestro is certainly making the most of his holiday. After enjoying a kickabout with an outrageous lucky young fan on an Antiguan beach earlier in the week, the 32-year-old then engaged in bit of keepaway with his two sons, Mateo and Thiago, as well as his massive dog.

As posted by OTRO on Twitter, the Messis can be seen enjoying a garden kickabout with the imposing pooch in the middle as the star and his sons attempt to keep the ball away from him. 

Throughout the video, Mateo, adorned in a Barcelona No. 10 shirt, can be heard laughing hysterically, which is understandable considering how ludicrously large the creature hunting him down is.

Just another day in the life of the Messis.
