Neymar Derided For Ill-Conceived Stephen Hawking 'Tribute'

Neymar Derided For Ill-Conceived Stephen Hawking 'Tribute'
By Gavin Cooney

Neymar Ltd is currently out injured, recuperating from a broken metatarsal ahead of the World Cup. Close followers of his social media accounts will realise that he has elected to return home to Brazil, and has been confined to a wheelchair as he recovers from surgery.

Neymar's social media game is normally quite good, but alas, that has all gone awry today with an attempt to pay tribute to the late Stephen Hawking.

Here it is.

The caption translates as "You have to have a positive attitude and get the best out of the situation in which you find yourself", which means that Neymar is drawing a comparison between his broken foot and Hawking's battle with motor neurone disease.

The reception to Neymar's absurdity has been....unkind.
