Brazilian soccer star Neymar left a police station in Sao Paulo on Thursday after testifying about rape allegations against him.

The Brazilian striker was accompanied by his lawyers to answer questions about the accusations he raped a woman in a hotel in Paris on May 15.

Neymar denies any wrongdoing. His accuser has already spoken to police.

Just before departing in the evening, Neymar said, "The truth appears, sooner or later." He also thanked fans for their support.

Neymar is also being investigated in Rio de Janeiro for publishing images of his accuser in social media without her authorisation.

Neymar's accuser said she has picked her fourth lawyer to handle the case after the previous three decided to leave the case.
