Neymar is currently out for Barcelona after contracting mumps—and you can see the effect it has had on the striker's face in a picture a friend of the Brazilian put on Instagram.

The message was a show of support, but it's perhaps no surprise that he is expected to miss a week or two to recover from the sickness.

That didn't stop team-mate Dani Alves from having fun with it, though—as the Sun Times reports, he joked that it was a children's disease in a recent interview.
