Reports: Neymar accused of rape in Paris

Neymar has reportedly been accused of a raping a women at a hotel in Paris last month.

The woman made a statement at a Sao Paulo police station two days after the incident once she had flown back to Brazil as she was "emotionally shaken and afraid to register the facts in another country," according to the police document obtained by UOL Sport.

According to the documentation, Neymar flew her over from Brazil to Paris and made a booking at the Hotel Sofitel Paris Arc Du Triomphe.

The document states: "At some point, Neymar became aggressive, and through violence, engaged in sexual intercourse against the will of the victim.

The footballer's father, Neymar dos Santos, told Band TV in Brazil on Saturday that "it is clear that it was a trap."

"If public opinion is not cleared up, and if we can't show the truth rapidly, this will snowball. If we have to show Neymar's WhatsApps and the conversations with this girl, we will," he added.

Neymar, who has recently been stripped of his Brazil captaincy following a series of disciplinary issues, is currently training with the national team ahead of the upcoming Copa America.
