Neymar may be on his winter break but the Paris Saint-Germain star is never far away from a football.

The 26-year-old flew back home to spend the festive period with his family and see in the new year in his native Brazil and is not due to return to Paris until later this week.

Neymar has been keeping busy during his time off and showed off his skills at teqball on Monday afternoon as he continues to recover from an adductor injury.

The Brazilian forward took on professional Footvolley stars Natalie and Bianca at teqball alongside professional poker player Andre Akkari.

Neymar was a natural and secured a few points for his team but Natalie and Bianca held a natural advantage, being used to this type of competition.

The duo are stars in Footvolley, which is a sport that combines aspects of beach volleyball and association football and was created in Brazil back in 1965.

It wasn’t clear who won the match but it certainly seemed competitive in the short video that was uploaded on to Natalie and Bianca’s Instagram account.

Neymar is expected to spend a few more days in Brazil before returning to the French capital for assessments on his injury.

The forward is set to miss PSG’s first game back in the French Cup round of 64 clash on Sunday but could be in line to return for their league cup quarter-final against Guingamp.

He has been in impressive form for the French champions this season, scoring 16 goals and assisting eight in 19 games in all competitions.
