Neymar Comforts Teary Eyed Pitch Invader And Gives Him His Shirt

Neymar is used to getting a hard time. In some cases -- we're talking about the diving -- the criticism can be justified from pundits and football fans. However, the Paris Saint-Germain forward created a truly special moment for one fan.

During PSG's match against Rennes, the Brazilian was being subbed off when a young pitch invader came running up to the former Barcelona player.

Neymar comforted the boy before security came to escort him off the pitch, but the PSG player also took off his shirt and handed it to the teary eyed kid.

Check it out below:

Fair play to Neymar. What an absolute champion!

You know it's easy to criticise a player on the pitch for their questionable actions, but they still know how important it is to care for the fans who support them.

PSG beat Rennes 3-1 and are top of Ligue 1, winning all six of their opening matches in the domestic season.
