Neymar is 22 years old and already the face of Brazilian football, and he has carried his team into the World Cup semi-finals. He's also been ruled out for the remainder of the tournament with a fractured vertebra.

Fans of Argentina, Brazil's chief South American rivals and fellow semi-finalists, have reacted in a couple of different ways. Some went the classy route, holding up a "Fuerza Neymar" banner outside the stadium.

Others, as you can see in the video above, took the more tasteless approach of dancing around with a plastic spine.
