LIONEL MESSI has whisked his family off for a break in the Alps.
The Argentine superstar, 35, only recently returned from International duty after winning the World Cup.
This included him featuring in Paris Saint-Germain's exhibition match against a Cristiano Ronaldo-led All-Star team comprised of players from Al-Nassr and Al-Hilal.
Messi scored inside three minutes during the 5-4 thriller, but was later absent for PSG's 7-0 thrashing of non-league side Pays de Cassel – a game which saw Kylian Mbappe score FIVE.
And it appears in his time off, he instead spent some family time with wife Antonela Roccuzzo and his three children.
The ex-Barcelona star posted a compilation to his Instagram page, a page which boasts the "most liked post" on the social media site.

The photos showed Messi clad in warm winter clothing with a woolly hat and thick coat to ward off the chilly weather.
Other photos showed him in a hot spring pool as he kept warm alongside his family.
He even shared an intimate snap of just himself and Antonela in the pool together.
The post ended with the family all posing for a photo in front of a picturesque background with the snowy tops of the Alps.
