Neymar’s 52-year-old mother and her 23-year-old toyboy lover are quizzed by police after he suffered a serious arm injury during ‘domestic accident’ at their Brazil home

  • Neymar’s mother and her 23-year-old lover were questioned by Brazilian police 
  • Tiago Ramos, 23, injured his arm on Tuesday night needed 12 stitches
  • Nadine Goncalves, the mother of the Brazilian footballer, called an ambulance
  • The mother-of-two, 52, and the young model have been dating since April
  • Mr Ramos is facing allegations of domestic assault from a previous relationship 

The mother of football superstar Neymar and her 23-year-old lover have been questioned by Brazilian police over an incident which saw the latter rushed to hospital this week.  

Nadine Goncalves, 52, called an ambulance after her boyfriend Tiago Ramos suffered an injury during a reported row in the couple’s apartment in Santos on Tuesday night. 

It was revealed on Wednesday that Ramos needed 12 stitches in his arm, with Brazilian reports stating the wound was caused by a glass. 

The mother of Brazilian football star Neymar, Nadine Goncalves (pictured left) and her 23-year-old lover Tiago Ramos (right) have been questioned by police following an incident which left the toyboy needing 12 stitches in his arm

A spokesperson for mother-of-two Ms Goncalves said: ‘There was a domestic accident with Tiago.

‘Nadine thought it best to call for an ambulance as a precaution but they are fine. Everything is fine.’

According to Rio de Janiero news outlet Extra, a neighbour claimed that Ms Goncalves and Mr Ramos were arguing in their apartment on the night in question. 

Unconfirmed reports from Brazil say that the model punched a window which lead to his injuries.  

A spokesperson for footballer Neymar, a national hero in Brazil who plays his club football for French side Paris Saint-Germain, said: ‘They clarified there was no assault, just a domestic accident that left Tiago’s arm badly injured. 

‘He’s still recovering. The two of them are doing well and continuing with their social distancing routines.’

The couple began dating in April, but Brazilian press stated the pair began dating again following a break-up on May 21.

Mr Ramos (pictured right) is facing accusations of domestic assault in a previous heterosexual relationship, while it has been reported that the model has been in homosexual relationships before dating Neymar (left)'s mother

The romance caused shockwaves in Brazil, especially as the model is reported to have been in several gay relationships before dating the footballer’s mother, including one with Neymar’s personal chef. 

Irinaldo Oliver, a PR consultant from Sao Paulo, admitted to beginning an affair with Mr Ramos whilst the 23-year-old was in a relationship with Ms Goncalves.

Mr Oliver told said: ‘I was shocked by this news about his new relationship [with Neymar’s mother] and my phone hasn’t stopped ringing.

‘I began to receive photos of him with Neymar’s mum. I’m astonished. I always knew he saw women as well but I had never seen him with any.’ 

According to the Brazilian press, pressure from Ms Goncalves’ family following the revelation of Mr Ramos’ homosexual past was a reason for the couple briefly splitting last month.

Furthermore, Mr Ramos is facing allegations of assault from a previous woman he has dated. 44-year-old Rita Cumplido told a Brazilian TV station that the model attacked her whilst under the influence of alcohol. 

Footballer Neymar, who is currently the most expensive footballer of all-time, gave his blessing for his mother’s relationship with Mr Ramos back in April, telling her to ‘be happy’ in a social media post.   

Neymar Santos Sr, the footballer’s father and Ms Goncalves’ ex-partner, is also believed to be a supporter of new relationship. 

Mr Ramos is believed to have been a huge fan of the 28-year-old PSG star before dating his mother.

Roger Federer tops Forbes’ Athletes Rich List for the first time


Roger Federer becomes first tennis player EVER to top Forbes’ Athletes Rich List after raking in yearly earnings worth £86m as 38-year-old edges out Lionel Messi, LeBron James and Tyson Fury

  • Forbes have released their list of the top-50 paid athletes in the world of sport
  • Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and LeBron James all earn spots in the top 10
  • Tennis player Naomi Osaka is the highest ranked female, ranking in at No 29 
  • Her tennis counterpart Roger Federer tops the standings with $106.3m earnings 

Roger Federer has been crowned No 1 on Forbes’ Highest Paid Athletes list for the first time in his career. 

The Swiss tennis icon has held off competition from Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, Neymar and LeBron James to take top spot with pre-tax earnings in 2020 of $106.3million (£85.9m).

Federer, who has won 20 Grand Slam titles to date which is the most of any male player in the tennis Open era, has amassed such a profile that he generated $100m (£80.7m) in endorsements alone.   

Roger Federer has been crowned as the highest earning athlete in the world by Forbes

Cristiano Ronaldo waived four months of his salary as part of the reductions due to the coronavirus pandemic

Lionel Messi has traded top spot for years with Ronaldo but Barcelona's squad accepted wage cuts of 70 oper cent back in March

Cristiano Ronaldo (left) and Lionel Messi (right) shared top spot in three of the last four years

Interestingly, Forbes’ research found that the top 100 highest-paid athletes earned a combined figure of $3.6billion in the last year.

While that is a staggering figure, it is nine per cent below what was reported in 2019 and represents the first decline in earnings since 2016.

The 38-year-old Swiss is just the ninth athlete to take top sport since it was first done in 1990. He is the first tennis player in those 30 years to finish No 1, too. 

Federer topping the pile is significant given that Ronaldo, who finished second, and Messi, who finished third, have traded the No 1 position in three of the last four years the list was compiled.

But the impact of the coronavirus pandemic, and major pay-cuts at both of their clubs, have seen their overall earnings take a hit, resulting in them conceding first place. 

Ronaldo and Messi combined for total pre-tax earnings of $209m (£169m) in the last 12 months, a $28m (£22.6m) drop from the year before. 

Messi announced in March that Barcelona’s players took a 70 per cent pay cut to help the club get through the pandemic. 

Ronaldo and his Juventus team-mates waived four months wages in a bid to do their part, a move which is believed to save the Italian champions €90m (£81m).  

WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury is the highest earning British athlete, according to the list, narrowly edging out Formula One champion Lewis Hamilton, who ranks 13th, two places below Fury.

Fury has returned to the top of the sport of boxing and now holds one of the prestigious heavyweight belts having beaten Deontay Wilder, who ranks 20th on the list, in February by knockout to take the prize belt.

Anthony Joshua finished in 19th position having had yearly earnings of $47million (£38m)

Fury’s breakdown shows $50m in winnings and salary with $7m of his pre-tax yearly earnings from endorsement deals. His total puts the heavyweight $3m ahead of Hamilton. 

In terms of other athletes from the UK and Ireland, Rory McIlroy (14th), Conor McGregor (16th) and Anthony Joshua (19th) all feature inside the top 20.   

No sport has more representatives on the list than the National Basketball League and LeBron, the face of the NBA, comes in at No 5 as the highest-ranked basketball star. The Los Angeles Lakers star is reported to have earned $60m in endorsements in the last 12 months on top of his $28.2m salary in California.    

While Federer took top sport in a landmark moment for tennis, Naomi Osaka is another boost for the sport as she was crowned as the highest-earning female athlete in the world. 

The Japanese WTA Tour player surpassed Serena Williams as the world’s highest-paid female athlete, raking in $37.4million (£30.1m) in prize money and endorsements over the last year. Osaka earned $1.4m (£1.1m) more than American great Williams who had topped the list for the last four years.

Liverpool attacker Mohamed Salah, Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil and Manchester United’s Paul Pogba earn spots inside the top 50 but the list is largely populated by individual sports or American sports such as the NBA and NFL (National Football League). 

Japan's Naomi Osaka made £30.7m in prize money and endorsements over the past 12 months

What sporting stars like Neymar are up to as coronavirus pandemic shuts down sporting world


With the first weekend of elite sport suspended as a consequence of the coronavirus pandemic upon us, it is not just the regular-going fans who are seeking alternative ways to spend their weekend.

Sports stars all around the world have themselves turned from entertainers to keeping themselves occupied.

Physical activity was of course at the centre of most of their alternative activities, but others preferred to adopt a more sedentary lifestyle for the time being.  

Sergio Ramos put himself through his paces at his Spanish home with La Liga suspended

The 21-year-old became a father for the first time last month, but despite posting a picture of him and his baby on his page – it appeared a game against his pet was too tempting to turn down.

Italy was the first European country to feel the real effects of the coronavirus, and after games were played behind closed doors last weekend Serie A has now shut down for the long run.

But despite the cancellation, Lewis Hamilton – who was looking to begin his bid to match Michael Schumacher’s seven world titles this month – stuck around in the Australian city for some indoor rock climbing.
