The recent Mobile World Congress held in Barcelona saw a host of Tech experts from around the globe attend the event. Topping the list was Google’s Indian born CEO Sundar Pichai. Pichai was there along with his team from Google to attend the event.
Apart from the MWC 2017, the Google CEO took a visit to the La Masia, the mecca of FC Barcelona, responsible for creating players like Lionel Messi, Xavi, Carles Puyol, Andrés Iniesta, Pique and many more.
