Neymar unharmed after private jet makes emergency landing in Brazil

Neymar's private jet had to make an emergency landing on Tuesday morning at an airport in the northern Brazilian city of Boa Vista.

The Paris Saint-Germain forward was on board the aircraft, a Cessna 680 Citation model built in 2008 and owned by Neymar Sport E Marketing, that was travelling to Brazil's capital Sao Paulo from Las Vegas.

Neymar had left Las Vegas on Monday afternoon and the aircraft had made a couple of stops, first in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and then Barbados, before heading to Brazil.

The emergency landing was due to technical problems and everyone on board escaped unharmed.
