Lionel Messi is teaming up with Serena Williams, Usain Bolt and Michael Jordan as they join forces with Gatorade to launch an initiative called 'GOAT Camp'.
The Barcelona star is the only footballer present but alongside stars from other sports they are looking to inspire the next generation.
The training camp offers a chance to learn from the quartet who have, at one time or another, dominated their sport.
Invites will be sent out to individuals who have been carefully selected and awarded a golden ticket which grants them access.
Messi, Williams, Bolt and Jordan will all have their own station where they show off the best of their abilities – the Argentine will be situated at the "Messi Station."
There he will look to dodge a team of bionic legs to prove that with a ball at his feet he is the greatest player on the planet.
Messi said: “Working on the new Gatorade commercial was brilliant. I loved the idea of a ‘GOAT CAMP’ – a place where athletes can work to make their dreams of being the greatest come true.
"Gatorade is part of my daily training routine, and hopefully the campaign helps to inspire the younger generation to train and perform better than ever before.”
Bolt's speed is his greatest asset and will be on show while Williams' serve and Jordan's legendary slam dunk are also part of the camp.
Mark Kirkham, one of the chiefs involved with the initiative, said: “Gatorade is proud to help the next generation of athletes improve and maintain their performance and give them opportunities to maximize their potential and become future greats.
"Whether it’s on the football pitch, the court, or the track, some of the greatest athletes in the world trust Gatorade — and we want to help elevate the next generation in the same way.”
