Far away from his home town Rosario, Lionel Messi's 30th birthday was celebrated with much fanfare at a club in Kolkata, the football-crazy city. 

A 65-pound cake of five feet length and three feet in width resembling a football pitch was cut by the Football Fan Club at Ganguly Bagan in South and members also distributed football and sweets in nearby areas.

They have been celebrating Messi's birthday since 2006 when the Argentine made his debut.
