At least five times during the match against Atletico de Madrid this week, Neymar lifted his shirt to show the top of his underwear. It was so obvious he was trying to show off their newest sponsor that newspapers in Brazil consulted lawyers.

“If he does this during the World Cup he may even be arrested,” said the master in sports law, Gustavo de Souza Lopes Pires, to  Folha de Sao Paulo yesterday. According to him, this attitude violates the General Law of the Cup and may be punished by suspension but even arrest in flagrante.

One has to admire the creativity os these people. And wonder why there is never enough money in their bank accounts
