Barcelona star Lionel Messi fulfilled his promise to the NBA’s MVP Steph Curry for reaching 10 million followers on social media network Instagram by sending the Golden State Warriors talisman a Barcelona shirt with his name and number 10 emblazoned on the back.

Curry is a long-time admirer of the five-time World Footballer of the Year and sent the Argentine a signed Warriors number 30 shirt when Messi reached 30 million followers back in December.

Curry is set to return to the court on Sunday in game four of Golden State’s first round playoff series against the Houston Rockets -- which the Warriors’ lead 2-1 -- after missing the last two games due to an ankle injury.

He averaged 30.1 points per game and made a record 402 three-pointers to lead the Warriors to a record 73-game win regular season.
