Argentine farmer grows 124-acre image of Lionel Messi visible from space.

An Argentine farmer has grown an enormous 124-acre image of Lionel Messi visible from space after planting a specially designed corn field to celebrate the star's World Cup heroics.

Maximiliano Spinazze used an algorithm that calculated where seeds would need to be planted in his field in Los Condores, in the central Cordoba province of Argentina.

The result was an enormous image of Messi's bearded visage that is visible from space. The incredible tribute to the footballing great comes after he helped Argentina to a famous World Cup victory over France in Qatar.

The football-mad South American country is a major agricultural producer, the third largest global exporter of corn. 

Farming is its main export driver, though football may be its top claim to fame.

Carlos Faricelli, a farming engineer, designed the coding for the machines sowing the seeds that enabled them to plant in a precise pattern to create the eventual image, with certain areas more dense with seeds than others.
