It rained on his parade, but Argentine footballer Lionel Messi greeted his new Inter Miami fans and was hailed by the club's owner as "America's number 10" at a damp but celebratory unveiling event on Sunday.

Miami's 20,000-capacity stadium was close to full despite a huge thunderstorm just before the event to celebrate the arrival of the World Cup winner was due to begin.

The club's co-owner David Beckham opened the ceremony, saying Messi's arrival was a "dream come true" before majority owner Jorge Mas whipped up the crowd.
