Neymar, one of the world’s leading footballers, has given $ 1 million (about Rs 7.6 crore) to help fight against the deadly corona virus in Brazil. According to TV network SBT, Neymar, the star of the Paris Saint-German club, contributed a substantial amount of this amount to the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF).
According to the report, Neymar, the world’s third-highest-earning footballer, gave the rest to his charitable fund from Brazilian TV presenter Luciano Haque. However the press office of this striker declined to comment, saying, ‘We never talk about donations or such amount.’

The 28-year-old Neymar did like his PSG teammate Kylen Mbapppe, who had secretly donated a large amount last month. Mbappé donated to a French charity to help in this war against COVID-19.
Neymar is staying at his luxury villa in Mangaratiba, outside Rio, as a defense against the Kovid-19 outbreak. She faced criticism last week when she was seen clicking photos while relaxing with friends on the beach volleyball court. His press team said he was not meeting anyone.
