Messi’s Statue – level 2
Last June, people unveiled a statue of Lionel Messi in Buenos Aires. Vandals removed the statue’s head and torso last week. Work is already underway to repair this statue.
This was not the first time that a statue on the street was vandalised. Someone stole a tennis racket from a statue of Gabriela Sabatini.
Difficult words: unveil (show something to the public for the first time), torso (the middle part of the human body), underway (if something is underway, it already started).
You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
