Neymar has seemingly copied Brazilian compatriot Willian with the PSG star seen with a pot belly while on holiday.

Arsenal ace Willian was mocked after returning to the Premier League giants with a little extra timber around the midriff.

And now Neymar has been seen in a similar situation while on holiday after his Copa America exploits.

The forward helped Brazil to the final of the competition and is enjoying some much-deserved downtime after a hectic season.

Though topless pictures of Neymar show the 29-year-old with a bit of a paunch around his stomach, something that was quickly picked up on by fans.

One wrote on social media: "Neymar phoned up Willian like 'ay I wanna be like you big man, literally'"

While another wrote: "Both Neymar and Willian getting pregnant this summer."

With a third joking: "Neymar's fat brother looks so much like Neymar."

And a bemused supporter added: "How tf did Neymar get fat in just a few weeks?"

Neymar is sure to be back match fit before we know it with the Brazil ace previously addicted to junk food.

"His size was always an issue," said his former coach Lima. "He was really thin so we had to change the nutrition.

"A doctor, a nutritionist, in Sao Paulo helped. But he would eat a lot of junk food. Burgers.

"He would eat anything. And he would drink sodas. We changed all that.

"When he was in the Under 15s we helped him and his team-mates to gain muscle. It certainly helped him."

While Neymar opened up on his childhood difficulties, saying: "There's a story with my mum and I think most people know it.

"I really wanted to eat cookies but we didn't have any, so my mum said: 'Son we don't have more money, there's no way. I'll owe you this week, maybe next week when dad gets his payment, we can buy it.'

"At the same time I told her, 'mum it's OK. One day I will be very rich. I'll buy a cookie factory so I can eat whenever I want.'

"My mum cries when she tells that story because it was really touching for her."
