Neymar has reason to feel very proud today after learning that his face is being used by Brazilian drug sealers as a kind of ‘stamp of excellence’ which they proudly display on their very finest cocaine.
According to Globo, the Sao Paulo military police arrested a 27-year-old man for flogging drugs on Thursday night after he was caught with 31 vials of cocaine, 43 rocks of crack and 80 grammes of marijuana about his person.
The police then noticed that the coke capsules all had Neymar’s face individually printed onto them. They then asked the dealer why he had used Neymar’s image on his wares, who replied that using the Barcelona forward’s face helped assure his customers that the drug was of “the best quality” and that it also “highlighted the quality” of the coke.
Wow. What a wonderful tribute! Better than any Ballon d’Or…
