Barcelona striker Lionel Messi was presented with his third Golden Boot award on Wednesday after finishing with the most league goals in Europe last season.

The 26-year-old scored 46 goals in La Liga, helping the Catalans reclaim their title back from rivals Real Madrid despite missing several games through injury.

Unfortunately for Barcelona fans, hamstring strains have returned to plague Messi, who conceded it was unclear when he would be fit again.

Messi, who becomes the first player to receive the award three times, has won four consecutive World Player of the Year awards, three Champions League, six Spanish Super Cups, two Copas del Rey and two European Super Cups.
