Messi and Ronaldo beheaded by ISIS

Fanatics of radical terrorist group, ISIS, have threatened to behead Barcelona star Lionel Messi and Real Madrid ace Cristiano Ronaldo in sickening new posters warning of attacks at the World Cup. The mock images were released on messaging channel Telegram and show masked men behind the two superstars in a packed stadium, slicing at their necks with blades.

When translated into English, the poster reads, "Your blood will fill the ground".

Another poster shows a militant carrying what appears to be an explosive device in to a stadium. Messi who single-handedly secured Argentina's qualification to Russian Federation with a hat-trick over Ecuador on the final day of South America's qualifying series was named in Jorge Sampaoli's 35-man provisional squad for the World Cup that was released on Monday.

It is the latest in a series of online threats made against this summer's showpiece football tournament and Barcelona star Messi has been the target of similar warnings over the past year.

ISIS had earlier struck St Petersburg city, killing 144 people in brief bomb attack, in protest against Russia's airstrikes at the ISIS ruled territories in Syria.

Ronaldo and Messi will both finish up with their clubs before joining their national teams for the World Cup, with both players due to play their final La Liga game this weekend and Ronaldo preparing to face Liverpool in Kiev or the final of the Champions League.

The image has been released by Wafa Media Foundation known as the Islamic State mouthpiece and is the latest in a series of sick messages aimed at football fans.
