Lionel Messi's goal can leads to Earthquakes: Claims study

Lionel essi, Earthquake,

Barcelona: A recent scientific study showed that Barcelona legend Lionel Messi's goal can even lead to earthquakes. Considered as one of the world's greatest football players, Messi certainly have the ability to create earthquake while delivering goals.

A Forbes report showed that a recent research conducted by the Institute of Earth Science Jaume Almera and published in Nature's scientific reports, shows how powerful football celebrations can be. The researchers installed a seismometer, the instrument to measure seismic activity in the earth-near the camp Nou stadium in Barcelona.

After analysing vibrations on earth, the scientists were able to show that every time fans celebrated a goal in Cam Nou Stadium, the foot tapping and jumping of fans caused a spike in the seismic activity. One of the major highlights of the study was the recording of fan moments during a last-minute goal by Barcelona to claim a 6-5 win over Paris Saint-Germaine in 2017 season of the Champions League.

However, the study showed that the mini- earthquakes triggered by Messi's goals posed no threats of serious nature.
