Romario didn't just throw it out without sources. He had made a number of Twitter tweets about the topic, including two links:

Someone blogging on August 28th http://exame.abril.com.br/rede-de-blogs ... m-autista/

And what appears to be the web version of a TV spot: http://mais.uol.com.br/view/hpekq03k3r0 ... 6?types=A&

Both of these seem to be alluding to this article from August 26: http://www.diariodocentrodomundo.com.br ... -do-mundo/

So it has all started with media coverage on a solely national level in Brazil, and stayed very unheard of in the rest of the world, more than some coverage on Romario twittering on the subject. And what has been written on that has basically been described as "only Romario speculating", so they haven't even managed any basic research of sources.

Here is a "Google" translation of the first three paragraphs from the cited article:

Quote:
Messi is autistic. He was diagnosed at 8 years old, still in Argentina, with Asperger's Syndrome, known as a mild form of autism. Although the diagnosis of athlete has been little publicized and asked, as a way to protect it, the fact is that their behavior on and off the field are revealing.

Having Asperger's is not no demerits. People are generally male, having difficulties in socialization, interests and repetitive motor acts very strange. Popularly , the syndrome is known as a factory geniuses. It is the case of Messi.

It is possible to identify, by experience , such as autism reveals itself in their behavior on the field - the team, the dribbling, the movement, the chute." Autistics are always looking to adopt a pattern and repeat it thoroughly," says Nilton Vitulli, father of an Asperger's syndrome and an active member of the NGO Autism and Reality and social networking Citizen Health, which includes parents and family "aspergianos."

Why, because he didn't diagnose himself?
