Neymar came to the resuce of an 8-year-old boy named Bernard during a Brazil training session over the weekend. The boy wandered onto the field at Brazil’s training ground in Sao Paulo, and he was quickly escorted away by security. According to ESPN, Bernard understandably started crying.

“I thought (the security guard) would take me to jail.”

Neymar saw the commotion and ran over, freeing Bernard from the secuity. He invited him on the pitch, dribbled the ball around and then posed for a photo of with a few other Brazilian players.
