Fat Versions of Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo & Other Football Stars

Some fantastic artwork by the Colombian Fulvio Obregon gives us the world’s biggest football stars in their fat version, including small guys like Lionel Messi or the perfectly built Cristiano Ronaldo looking like he hasn’t been to the gym for quite some time, making up for that time with visits to some burger joint and always asking for extras.

Who else is on the list? Wayne Rooney, who it actually makes sense to think of him as overweight. He has never been the leanest of footballers, and it’s quite wise to assume that the moment his football career ends, he’s not going to be spending a lot of time in the gym.

Obregon made these works of art heading into the World Cup, which is why they’re all made wearing the colors of their national team and not their club jerseys. Well, except for Ronaldo, who gets two versions because Obregon recently made a special Real Madrid edition of fat players.
