Neymar backs Bolsonaro with TikTok dance clip

Neymar, a footballer, has endorsed Jair Bolsonaro, the Brazilian President in his bid to re-election.

Brazilian sports star, Bruno 30, posted a video in which he danced and mimed to the right-wing politician’s campaign song.

Then, he urged his 8.4million followers to vote in favor of the incumbent president.

Bolsonaro currently trails his rival, the former president of the left-wing Luiz Inacio Lula Da Silva in opinion polls before Sunday’s first round vote.

The president had visited an institute of charity in Sao Paulo that was owned by Paris Saint-Germain earlier in the week.

Neymar made a separate video greeting Bolsonaro, but he didn’t endorse him. He did, however, thank him for the “illustrious” visit.

Bolsonaro took advantage of the endorsement by the world’s best player and reposted the clip to Twitter to try to win over undecided votes in the football-mad country.

Bolsanaro’s endorsement is not limited to Neymar. Lucas Moura, Tottenham Hotspur’s Tottenham Hotspur player, also endorsed Bolsanaro earlier this month. He said to Cara a Tapa that he doesn’t believe there is a perfect candidate for the presidency but that Bolosonaro is closest to what he believes.

He is currently 12 points behind his challenger, who led Brazil for two terms from 2003 to 2019.
