The 'Lionel Messi v Cristiano Ronaldo is the greatest debate' has been a regular narrative over the last decade.

But in India it appears to have got out of hand as an argument between two Nigerian football fans on the subject, led to the death of one of the pair.

According to Indian police, a 21-year-old called Nwabu Chukwuma got into a heated row with his friend Obinna Michael Durumchukwa on the Messi v Ronaldo subject which left the latter with fatal injuries.

The police state that Chukwuma threw a glass at his 34-year-old friend which missed its initial target and struck a wall before breaking into pieces.

The authorities claim that he then used one of the shards of glass to inflict fatal injuries to Durumchukwa.
