GOAT candidates in their own right, Serena Williams and Lebron James were left in awe as they got an up close looks at Lionel Messi turning out for Inter Miami.

Messi was on song on his Inter Miami debut scoring a sensational late free-kick to show what he is bringing to Major League Soccer.

Williams has significant sporting links to Miami as she holds a stake in the NFL franchise the Dolphins alongside her sister.

Serena was in Fort Lauderdale to see Messi make a dazzling debut for David Beckham’s Intern Miami.

Not only was she there but she was flanked by celebrities and sporting superstars, including LeBron James and Kim Kardashian.

Serena Williams was captured getting herself a shot of Messi.

Messi’s last-gasp free-kick saw Inter Miami advance in the Cup against Cruz Azul and sparked jubilation on the pitch and in the stands.

“What I saw was the goal,” Messi said in an on-field interview amid the post-game celebrations.

“I saw the goal. I knew that I had to score.

“It was the last play of the game and I wanted to score so I didn’t go to penalties.”

Throughout 2022, Serena Williams was the subject of the second-most Google searches in the United States. Williams’ announcement of her retirement from tennis in August 2022 caused shockwaves across the nation and the world, resulting in searches for the celebrity averaging 1.65 million per month all year long.

Williams, a 23-time Grand Slam winner, has continued to work hard while transitioning away from tennis; she has been kept busy managing her investing business.

Serena Williams may potentially make more money after retirement thanks to those wise investments than she did throughout her career.

In 2017, she established Serena Ventures in an effort to “write checks that empower change.”

To date, 79% of the businesses Serena Ventures has supported so far include founders who belong to underrepresented groups.

Williams joined Tonal as an investor before the company’s worth rose, and she has since become involved in a number of extremely successful enterprises.

She made more than $350 million through sponsorships during her playing career, considerably boosting her fortune.

In a career that really stands out from all others, she earned $94.52 million in prizes.

She won more prize money throughout her career than any other WTA Tour athlete has achieved before or since.

While carrying her daughter Olympia, Williams won her last Grand Slam in 2017.
