After Barcelona’s Twitter account was been hacked by a hacker group ‘OurMine’ earlier in the week, their arch-rivals Real Madrid on Saturday fell victim to another embarrassing incident.

The hacker group had sparked rumours of Angel di Maria’s transfer to Barcelona with a tweet captioned: “Welcome Angel Di Maria to FC Barcelona!”

And this time, the group (reported to be based in Saudi Arabia) took it a step further by announcing Lionel Messi’s signing with the caption: “Benvingut Messi! ¡Bienvenido Messi! Welcome Messi! Bienvenue Messi! #Messi”

And in classic tongue-in-cheek humour, the tweet actually has a video of Messi scoring a last-gasp winner in last year’s El Clasico at the Santiago Bernabeu!

Where will the hackers strike next? Nobody knows and nobody is safe it seems after they boasted that internet security is a child’s play to bypass.
