“The photograph… shows Neymar alongside people who are in quarantine with him, people who travelled with him from Paris to Brazil,” said his spokesman in a statement published by the Globo media group in Brazil.

“Neymar invited those people to spend the 14 days in quarantine there before joining their respective families.”
