Not even the pouring rain could spoil Lionel Messi's Inter Miami welcome party on Sunday (July 16) in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, where the new face of Major League Soccer was introduced to a packed stadium of adoring fans.

Messi, seven months removed from leading Argentina to World Cup glory in Qatar, was presented to fans during a glitzy event called 'The Unveil' at Miami's home stadium.
