- Football fans around the world have began the 'Neymar Challenge' on social media
- The demonstration ridicules the Paris Saint-Germain star's antics of feigning injury
- Brazil's hopes of winning a sixth World Cup title was dashed after losing to Belgium
Brazil star Neymar appears to have become the punchline of jokes following his ridiculous antics at the World Cup.
The Paris Saint-Germain forward was obviously noticed for feigning injury which has caused significant damage to his reputation.
Neymar has repeatedly attempted to get an opponent in trouble by making the most out of tackles that does not seem to be harmful.
The 26-year-old would yell in pain only to miraculously rise to his feet minutes or even seconds later.
Now football fans around the world have made the 'Neymar Challenge' become an instant hit on social media.
The aim of the game is to imitate his antics in the most public place possible, and there have already been thousands of demonstrations posted on social media.
Some Mexico fans seem to make nuisance of themselves as they go down in the middle of a busy fun fair. NHL mascot SJ Sharkie also completed a fine impression of the former Barcelona man.
Children in summer camps learning how to play football the Neymar way during their training sessions was the most ridiculous of the demonstrations.
Neymar experienced several low moments at the World Cup. First, a penalty against Costa Rica which was overturned after consulting the VAR.
Replays showed the attacker had thrown himself to the ground after the slightest touch from Giancarlo Gonzalez but Brazil would go onto win that game 2-0.
Another was during Brazil's 2-1 defeat to Belgium, the 26-year-old tried to deceive the referee by throwing his leg into Marouane Fellaini's before going down in the box.
But the referee was wise to the deceit and waved away his appeal for a penalty. He should have been booked for simulation but escaped being punished.
