After missing a match in Hong Kong, Lionel Messi played a friendly in Japan, sparking shock and conspiracy theories among thousands of Chinese fans in Hong Kong.

State media Global Times accused Messi and his club Inter Miami of having “political motives aimed at causing embarrassment to Hong Kong”.

Messi was on the bench for the rest of Sunday's game in Hong Kong – an autonomous Chinese administrative region – due to injury.

Wednesday's match in Tokyo prompted some fans to wonder if he was actually injured.
