Brazilian forward, Neymar da Silva Santos Junior, aka, Neymar Jr., has gone viral for punching a fan out of annoyance after his club lost French Cup.
This happened on Saturday when a football fan thought he could capture the historic moment with his phone camera.
Neymar, who scored one of PSG’s goals, was passing by fans along with other teammates. He then stops near a fan who was filming the players on a phone.
The player appears to cover the camera with his hand, push the man in question, and then “punch” the fan on the chin.
He later admitted to being wrong via an Instagram post, but he argued that anyone would act the way he did if they were in the situation.
