DTotD: Neymar gets tackled by pitch invaders during Brazil training session


Almost single-handedly winning Brazil’s first ever Olympic gold in football is apparently a good way to get yourself lovingly mauled by pitch invaders, as Neymar found out during a training session in Manaus. Amidst a sustained chorus of joyful shrieks, several pitch invaders evaded security to hug Neymar to the ground.

Neymar couldn’t help but smile during the hug attack and urged security to go easy on his assailants.

Of course, if he wins a World Cup for his country next, he’ll have a couple hundred million people trying to hug him at once.
