VIDEO: Neymar challenges Niall Horan to Ice Bucket Challenge

Brazilian superstar Neymar has nominated One Direction star Niall Horan for the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.

Neymar is due to return to action for Barcelona next week following the back injury that ruined his World Cup and he accepted Marcelo's nomination to complete the latest social media craze over the weekend.

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is also referred to as motor neurone disease (MND) or Lou Gehrig's disease and donations to the association have rocketed to €13.3m compared to €1.7 last year since this craze took off.

Celebrities all around the world have taken to social media to dump a bucket of ice water over themselves, donate money to the ALS association and nominate others to follow suit.

Neymar is a big fan of Horan and One Direction and earlier this year he posted a 'selfie' with the Irishman and said: "‘I'm a fan and admire the whole group!"

Horan was also nominated by celebrity pal Eddie Vedder, frontman of legendary grunge band Pearl Jam, over the weekend. Over to you, Niall.
