Ever wondered what soccer star Lionel Messi would sound like if he spoke English? Thanks to some tech magic, we now have an answer.
AI expert Javi Fernandez crafted a video in which Messi appears to chat in English. And guess what? It sounds as if Messi has been living in the U.S. for ages.
For some background: Messi, a significant figure in soccer, rarely gives interviews in English. Even though he has taken some English classes, he isn’t fluent. So, hearing him “speak” English, even if it’s AI-generated, is a big deal for fans.
Recently, Messi made headlines for his on-field skills. He scored the winning goal when Argentina played against Ecuador. After the match, he discussed the challenges his team faces. But remember, he spoke in Spanish.
This AI video of Messi speaking English has gone viral on X, previously known as Twitter. Some believe the voice is spot-on, while others are amazed by its authenticity.
A while back, Messi told journalist Guillem Balague about his English lessons, saying, “I’ve been learning English… I understand it, but I don’t speak it.”
In conclusion, while we might not hear the real Messi speak English anytime soon, this AI video offers a fun glimpse into what it might sound like. And as technology continues to advance, who knows what’s next?
