A Russian man has filed for divorce after a blazing row with his wife over whether Lionel Messi is better than Cristiano Ronaldo reports The Mirror.

It was the latest in a series of arguments about football and the relative merits of the world's two best players.

But this time, Arsen decided that the marriage was over and the next morning he filed for divorce at the courts of the city of Chelyabinsk in the Urals.

After telling the newspaper that the couple had fallen in love when they met in a bar whilst watching the 2002 World Cup, he said: “Since the beginning of the World Cup, she mocked Messi and said he couldn't even score a penalty against Iceland.

“I could not contain myself and told her what I thought about the vain Ronaldo, the Portuguese national team and all the clubs she likes.

“Then I took my belongings and left her forever.”
