A young Chilean kid would never had guessed that getting hit by a football from Neymar would have turned out to be the best day of his life.
But this latest video from Brazil’s Copa America camp suggest it might just have been.
The 23-year-old Barcelona striker was heading towards the Brazil team bus when a ball was thrown at his feet by fans seeking autographs and a glimpse of the world’s biggest stars.
Neymar pulled off a couple of keepy-ups before launching the ball back with considerable force – and unwittingly struck one of the spectators in the crowd.
The boy was subsequently given an amazing gift, as he was escorted onto the Brazil bus where he got to meet the star-studded squad before Neymar presented him with a signed football.
