Lionel Messi isn't the only successful member of the family, and his sister, Maria Sol Messi, has launched her own bikini range.

The line, which Maria has named 'Shine and Love', will be available in her native Argentina and around the globe.

The collection has come thanks to Bikini's Rio, who have collaborated with Maria to launch the line.

Bikini's Rio posted to their Instagram page the announcement with the caption: "We close the weekend with some MEGA news

"[We are] happy to launch this collection that we have been preparing together with an excellent designer and beautiful person @mariasolmessi."

Maria, 28, is the youngest member of the Messi household, and she has three older brothers: Rodrigo, Mathias, and a certain Lionel.

The 28-year-old is the brand manager of the 'Messi Store', and she has previously worked with Virginia Hilfiger, sister of famous designer Tommy Hilfiger.

Football is never far from Maria, even with her significant other, Tuli Arellano, who is also a footballer.

And Messi himself will be able to celebrate with his sister as he touched down in Rosario for Ligue 1's winter break.

Messi has shared Instagram snaps of him and his family in his hometown.

The 34-year-old left Argentina when he was 13 to relocate to Barcelona, who were desperate to sign the youngster due to his obvious footballing talent.

Infamously, Messi signed his first Barcelona contract on a napkin.

Messi left Barcelona over the summer when his contract expired, and Barca didn't have the financial means to negotiate with their star man.

The Argentine superstar moved to PSG, where he has struggled domestically to hit the highs he did in La Liga.

Messi has bagged just one goal for PSG in Ligue 1 since his move.

That single goal came against FC Nantes at the end of November.
