Brazilian icon Neymar was tackled to the ground by pitch invaders, looking to get up close and personnel with their hero.

Brazil were hosting an open training session in Manaus ahead of their huge World Cup qualifying game against Colombia on Wednesday.

A whopping 15,000 fans turned out to see their national side prepare for the game, but it wasn’t enough for a small portion of the crowd who wanted a closer look.

Two fans managed to find and hug Neymar before hauling him to the ground – while security guards attempted to prize them away.

The Barcelona forward seemed to take it in good nature as he smiled as his adoring fans wrapped around him.

Take a look the footage of the incident below.
