Andrea Pirlo may be one of the most debonair Europeans playing in Major League Soccer.

The Italian legend lived up to his worldly reputation this week with an apppearance at the United Nations.

Pirlo gave an speech as part of the closing ceremonies at the 2016 Change the World Model United Nations conference and then posed for pictures with some of the young participants.

Can't say we're surprised that he's able to inspire the kids both on and off the pitch.
