As Brazil recovers from the shock of losing Neymar to injury after the World Cup quarter-finals, messages and shows of support for Neymar poured in from Brazil.

The forward is out of the tournament after suffering a back injury during the game.

His tweet before the game, a prayer for protection for the team, looks poignant now:

David Luiz said that the whole of Brazil was with him in an Instagram message:

Ronaldinho, whose influence Brazil might now wish they had in Neymar's absence, also wished him the best:

It wasn't just Brazilian footballers who wanted to pass on their best. Radamel Falcao, who had just seen his Colombia team beaten, but missed the finals through injury, had his own words of consolation:

Lionel Messi took to Facebook to pay tribute to his team-mate at Barcelona:

And of course, as a nation reacted to the bittersweet news that Brazil had advanced but lost their star player, fans reacted, too. 

Supermodel Gisele Bundchen Instagrammed a picture of herself with Neymar, urging a swift recovery.

Brazil are back in action on Tuesday, playing Germany for a place in the World Cup final.
