The doppelganger, Reza Parastesh, was bombarded for selfies and it led to the police rushing him to a station to diffuse the chaos.
Paratesh also had his car impounded to clear the traffic after the 25-year-old has become a sensation in Iran.
He was urged by his father to pursue a career as a lookalike as he went on to pose for a photo in a No. 10 Barcelona shirt and sent pictures of himself around.
He explains how he was quickly pulled in for an interview, before being a man in demand as he went on to make more effort to look more like the Argentine.
Paratesh said: “Now people really see me as the Iranian Messi and want me to mimic everything he does. When I show up somewhere, people are really shocked.
“I’m really happy that seeing me makes them happy and this happiness gives me a lot of energy.”
Parastesh now maintains his beard and hair to look like Messi and often hits the streets in a Barcelona shirt.
