PSG and Brazil star Neymar celebrates 26th birthday with lavish party in Paris

Paris Saint-Germain and Brazil superstar Neymar celebrated his 26th birthday in Paris on Sunday with a glitzy bash mixing teammates, friends, family and other various VIPs.

Held at Pavilion Cambon in the French capital's first arrondissement and close to Place Vendome, PSG teammates Edinson Cavani, captain Thiago Silva, Kylian Mbappe, Dani Alves, Kevin Trapp, Giovani Lo Celso and Hatem Ben Arfa were among those present.

The Ligue 1 leaders were also represented by chairman and CEO Nasser Al-Khelaifi, sporting director Antero Henrique, coach Unai Emery and team coordinator Maxwell -- even the fitness staff were there!

Outside of PSG, Manchester City's Gabriel Jesus, Fulham's Chelsea loanee Lucas Piazon, Marseille's Luiz Gustavo and Lille's Thiago Maia were all present.

Brazilian legend Ronaldo showed up, as well as the likes of French artist and celebrity PSG fan DJ Snake, Brazilian singer Rodriguinho, DJ Alok and celebrity Luciano Huck.

Dinner was laid on for almost 200 guests before the Brazilian artists were followed by a BMX show and breakdancing.

As midnight neared, Neymar was presented with various gifts, as well as a video message from his son, Davi Lucca da Silva Santos, which reportedly reduced him to tears.

Birthday cake and a speech followed at midnight, before Colombian singer Maluma launched dancing, which was still going well past 1 a.m. in the morning with PSG players still present -- as evidenced by a number of social media updates.

As long as Neymar and his teammates avoid a shock Coupe de France exit at the hands of Ligue 2 outfit Sochaux on Tuesday, the PSG leaders will probably be happy with the outcome of a party that appears to have strengthened the team's chemistry.

At least the Brazil international and party animal Yuri Berchiche do not have to give a prematch news conference on Monday, unlike Emery.
