But just when security looked to have ushered the child, of around 10 years old, to safety, Neymar called for the stewards to stop.

The Brazil playmaker, who struck a hat-trick in the 5-0 win, gave the boy a moment he'll cherish for the rest of his life as he spent several minutes posing for pictures and introduced him to his team-mates who hoisted him in the air as if they'd just won the World Cup.
