Neymar, like the former Barcelona star Ronaldinho, is a true Brazilian showman.

The South American showed off a few classy touches during a passing session with Dani Alves before going rogue and doing whatever he fancied - including embarrassing Jeremy Mathieu with a sombrero over the defender’s head.

Neymar on course to become the world's best?
Barcelona fans adore Neymar, who has arguably surpassed Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo as the world’s second-best player over the past 12 months.
Kaka tipped his compatriot to win the Ballon d’Or in the near future earlier this week and it wouldn’t be a shock if he goes on to win he prestigious individual accolade in 12 months’ time.
Neymar currently sits second in the race for the Pichichi - on 14 goals behind teammate Luis Suarez - and is expected to secure second place at the 2015 Ballon d’Or ceremony in Zurich later this month.
