PSG won the French Super Cup for the 11th time after beating holders Nantes 4-0 on Sunday night.
Messi gave PSG the lead in the 22nd minute. Neymar doubled the score in the last seconds of the first half before Sergio Ramos made it 3-0 after the break.
Neymar sealed the result with a penalty in the 82nd minute after Nantes were reduced to 10 men when Jean-Charles Castelletto saw red for bringing the Brazilian down inside the box.
After the match, Messi was heading down the tunnel at the Bloomfield Stadium in Tel Aviv, Israel, when a young boy dashed towards him with a mobile phone in his hand.
Security grabbed the young man and started pulling him away from the former Barcelona man.
Messi then saw what was happening, instructed the security to let the boy go and gave him the time to pick up his phone before standing with him for a selfie and giving him a hug.
PSG will be back in action on August 6 as they open their new Ligue 1 campaign with a clash against Clermont Foot.
And will welcome Montpellier to Parc des Princes seven days later as their defence of the title gets into full swing.
