Brazilian Police have closed the investigation into allegations that footballer Neymar raped a women.

The Sao Paulo attorney general’s office has said that the investigation has been suspended due to a lack of evidence, following accusations from Brazilian model Najila Trindade that the Paris Saint-Germain footballer sexually assaulted her at a Paris hotel in May.

Authorities did confirm that the case has been sent to prosecutors for a final decision.

Neymar has denied all allegations and claimed that he is being extorted by Ms Trindade, who has repeatedly identified herself publicly as the alleged victim.
