Neymar blows €1m in an hour online

Brazilian superstar Neymar is currently recovering from ankle surgery and his bad luck on the field has continued off it, as the flamboyant sporting icon dropped €1million in a single hour of online casino play, which was being streamed to his own Twitch channel.

Neymar, who plays his club football in France, at Paris Saint-Germain, has been ruled out for the remainder of the current season with his injury and so has plenty of free time on his hands. Known to enjoy playing live poker and also gambling online, his loss would have seemed painful to his thousands of Twitch channel viewers.

However, in keeping with his reputation for simulation, the player – who earns £3.2m per month, more even than Lionel Messi – first pretended to weep, then laughed and finally shouted out in anger.

Whether or not the footballer, hugely popular with millions of youngsters, can be said to be fulfilling his expected duty as a ‘role model’ really is anybody’s guess.
