Neymar took to social media to hit out at claims of him being "overweight" and "out of shape" by posting pictures of his ripped physique during a training session with Brazil.

The Paris Saint-Germain star's weight was questioned after a shirtless picture of him began doing the rounds on social media, prompting fans to slam his physique and fitness levels. The picture was taken while the 29-year-old was on holiday following his exploits at Copa America earlier this summer.

The French media suggested that the Brazilian looked "out of shape" during PSG's win over Reims last weekend, and Neymar took to social media to address the baseless claims. He posted on his Instagram story, saying of the Chile match: "Did we play well? No! Did we win? Yes!"

He then addressed criticism of his weight, saying: "The shirt was size G (large), I'm at my weight. Next game I'll order an M," along with several laughing emojis.

And he has once again posted pictures on Instagram showing him flexing his muscles on the training ground. It was accompanied by the word 'Ué' which roughly translate to "huh".

PSG strike partner Kylian Mbappe and international colleagues Vinicius Jr and Marcelo commented on the post with a strong of laughing emojis.
