Neymar turned 27 on Tuesday, and there was no stopping the Brazil football team captain from partying despite his metatarsal injury giving him sleepless nights. 

The PSG star, who has been ruled out for 10 weeks, could be seen partying on crutches with Dani Alves, Kylian Mbappe.

Dressed in red, Neymar was full of energy and even the Internet decided to join in. His dance video and fans' reactions are doing the rounds on social media. 

Neymar will not undergo an operation, with PSG saying the Brazilian had instead agreed on a conservative treatment that could see him return in time for the Champions League quarter-finals in April should they qualify.
