Lionel Messi has revealed on Facebook the pink suit that he is set to wear at the Ballon d'Or ceremony in Zurich. 

As he understatedly put it on the social networking site: "Preparándome para la gala / Getting ready for the ceremony #Balondeoro #BallondOr."

The Argentine has worn some bold outfits to recent events he has attended, including a polka dot suit last time around.

However, this one would be on another level.

Will we see him on the podium accepting the award in pink?

Probably not—Cristiano Ronaldo is a very short favourite to scoop the award.
