Neymar Junior attended the Monaco Grand Prix on Sunday and was pictured meeting Spider-Man star, Tom Holland at the venue a day after his club lifted the Ligue 1 title.

In the principality, he rubbed shoulders with the likes of Holland, Orlando Bloom, and Michael Douglas.

Lionel Messi scored the only goal for PSG against Strasbourg and Neymar sent his congratulations to the club via an Instagram story posted from a yacht - a move which irritated some fans.

Speaking to Sky Sports at the Grand Prix, he said:

"It is impossible to resist the charm of F1."

As reported by Marca, there has been growing speculation that Neymar will leave the French side in the summer. He has been linked with multiple clubs including Manchester United in the Premier League.

Neymar rooting for Lewis Hamilton

Neymar also mentioned that he was rooting for his friend, Lewis Hamilton, but also mentioned his support for Mercedes' rivals, Red Bull Racing.

"I love F1 and above all I love Hamilton, who is a great friend of mine. I will support Red Bull and root for my friend."

The English driver managed a P4 finish at the Monaco GP after starting from the fifth position on the grid.

Meanwhile, Red Bull extended their lead on the top of the championship after yet another victory for Max Verstappen, as he turned his pole position start into a win.

Sergio Perez, Bad Bunny interact

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Sergio Perez was left in shock after his Red Bull and gear were 'stolen' by Puerto Rican rapper, Bad Bunny.

In a video shared by the Milton Keynes team, the Where She Goes singer shows off Checo's new blue helmet before donning one of his suits.

Afterwards, Bad Bunny climbed into the driver's RB19, much to the astonished look of the driver, before the two took pics in the crew area.
