Neymar limped off the pitch on Tuesday, as host nation Brazil trained ahead of the 46th Copa America, the world's oldest international football competition.

The star forward was hit on the left knee by his Paris St-Germain teammate Thiago Silva and was attended to by medical staff before leaving the training session early.

It has not been a good 48 hours for Neymar, who lost the Brazil captaincy for the Copa America to veteran Dani Alves.

The decision by head coach Tite came after Neymar's altercation with a fan at the French Cup final on 27th April.

Brazil, who have not won a major trophy since they last won the Copa America in 2007, are drawn in Group A with Bolivia, Venezuela and Peru.

They will open their campaign on 14th June against Bolivia at the Estadio do Morumbi in Sao Paulo.
