Brazilian football star Neymar was a surprise guest at the Olhão Seafood Festival on Monday.
The Paris Saint Germain star was called on stage by his friend Paula Fernandes, a Brazilian singer who was the headlining act of the festival that night, and was welcomed with a roar of applause.
It is unclear whether Neymar is on holiday in the Algarve or if he travelled here solely to support his friend.
The footballer has yet to take part in any match this season for the French club and is rumoured to be negotiating a move to his former team Barcelona as well as Real Madrid.
As singer Paula Fernandes joked on stage: “He took some time off from his practices to come give you all a hug.”
Neymar is widely recognised as one of the best footballers of his generation and remains the most expensive player in the history of football, being transferred from Barcelona to PSG in 2017 for a record fee of €220 million.
