Neymar was seen limping into Brazil's team hotel after two over-excited fans jumped him as he exited the team bus, colliding with his legs, and sending him staggering.

The Brazil squad returned to their hotel following training ahead of their World Cup qualifier at home to Ecuador and were greeted by excited, screaming fans as they got off their bus. Two youngsters escaped security and ran straight at Neymar, as one of them accidentally crashed into the Paris Saint-Germain star.

He was knocked off balance and scrambled to prevent one of the fans from running away with one of his shoes. Neymar managed to recover his shoe but looked visibly annoyed by the incident as he hobbled into the hotel lobby, sparking fears he could have picked up an injury in the process.

Brazil are set to face Ecuador on Friday night before playing Paraguay on Wednesday. They begin their Copa America campaign the following Sunday against Venezuela after the tournament was moved from Colombia and Argentina to Brazil due to huge coronavirus infection rates.
