Brazillian born, Neymar da Silva Santos Jnr. may go down in history as not only one of the best football players of his time but also as the man who delivered the most epic dive and dramatic performance in Fifa history. It’s an impressive feat since diving is stipulated in every footballer’s job description and most have perfected the art already.
But Neymar’s performance was so legendary it has since sparked a legitimate viral challenge where individuals, schools, teams, studios and even dogs are compelled to take part in a moment of sporadic flopping. It is fun to watch, check out some of the best #NeymarChallenge clips from this week below.
