A footballer has denied claims he raped a woman after a Brazilian police document reportedly revealed an unidentified woman had put in a report last month.

Neymar used Instagram yesterday to publish a seven-minute video that includes WhatsApp messages he says he exchanged with the accuser in a friendly way days later.

He calls the incident a set-up and insists it is an attempt of extortion against him.

The document says the incident took place on May 15, at 8.20pm in a hotel in Paris.

The woman went to police on Friday in Sao Paulo.

He told TV Band: This is a tough moment. If we cant show the truth quickly, it will be a snowball.

If we have to show Neymars WhatsApp messages and the conversations with this lady, we will.

Neymars father said he has evidence that his son was blackmailed, including pictures and witnesses, but did not show either in the interview.

He also said his son is already preparing his defence for a legal case if needed.

The Paris police and the citys prosecutors office said through spokesmen that they were unaware of any complaint.

The woman says she and the Brazil star met in France after exchanging Instagram messages.
