NEYMAR DEPARTS STORY: Brazil's star striker Neymar went to a Sao Paulo police station on Thursday (June 13) to give a statement regarding a rape investigation against him.
Neymar has denied the rape accusation outlined in a police report seen by Reuters, in which an unnamed woman alleges that the sports star drunkenly assaulted her at an up-market hotel in the French capital.
Sao Paulo state's public security ministry released a statement confirming the accusation had been made, and said the investigation was still sealed, without giving further details.
The police report was obtained by several news organisations including Reuters.
