    The star Brazilian forward, signed by PSG for a record breaking sum of $264 million in 2017, has become a laughing stock for social media for his latest diva-like half-time moment during a match where his club Paris Saint Germain faced off against Reims.

    The multi-million-dollar Brazilian forward, one of the world’s most expensive players, has given netizens some joke material after he was spotted taking extra-care of his looks during the recent game between PSG and another French club, Reims, which ended with a 4-1 victory for the Paris club.

    Neymar, who has been repeatedly mocked for his pasta-like hairstyle, excessive attention to his looks as well as his famous theatrics on pitch and dive-ins, is now being roasted for his half time skin care routine.

    Just before the second half of the match kicked off, Neymar, who scored one goal in the first half with a penalty shot, was spotted applying what appears to be face cream, making commentators guess the purpose of the procedure.

    ​This triggered a storm of jokes; some Twitter users pulled no punches.

    Some compared Neymar to social media diva Kim Kardashian, although this wasn't the first time.

    ​Others let their fear of clowns out.

    ​There were those who preferred good old trashing.

    ​However, the defenders were also in, standing up for the footballer.
