VIDEO: Neymar gambles away a million euros and bursts into tears

PSG star Neymar has reportedly lost a million euros playing online poker on Thursday, with the Brazilian crying in a live stream.

WHAT HAPPENED? Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar has apparently gambled away €1m playing online poker, with the currently injured Brazilian on a live stream Twitch supposedly started to cry.

WHAT IS THE BACKGROUND? It is doubtful whether the tears and the “Oh, fuck!” comment, accompanied by a Titanic song, were really honest after his great financial loss. Because immediately afterwards he also smiled when his teammates made fun of him by pointing out that he “got from a million to zero in 60 minutes”. Neymar joked that he will ‘put that on YouTube’.

It is not even clear whether it was Neymar’s own money that he was gambling. Because the stream was on his Twitch-Channel broadcast as part of a commercial partnership with ‘Blaze’, an online casino not licensed in France (online casinos are banned in France).
