Neymar has posted this viral video of him dancing for a social media challenge despite the fact he has not played since January due to a foot injury.

Neymar accepted a social media challenge created by Brazilian comic actor Renato Aragao. The Paris Saint-Germain forward had asked Aragao to create a dance for his friend Gustavo Almeida and Aragao’s video quickly became a social media challenge.

The challenge then came full circle after Neymar was asked to perform the dance by Jota Amancio, who is considered his ‘adopted’ brother.

In the video, Neymar can be seen in a pair of knee-high white socks and red shorts when he begins dancing.

The Brazilian pushes his hands out in front of him before attempting to spin around as music plays in the background.

He then bursts into laughter and he posted the video with the caption: “Challenge accepted from @jotaamancio! Little dance for @novofu and the challenge was invented by our idol @renatoarago.”

Neymar has not played since January 23rd with a foot injury but is expected to return for PSG soon. He passed the social media challenge on by tagging his friend and professional surfer Gabriel Medina in his video and asking him to partake.

In the Aragao’s original video, the 84-year-old can be seen shaking his hips as he dances in front of a swimming pool.
