Hutchinson-Gilford syndrome, otherwise known as Progeria, is an extremely rare genetic disorder that causes ageing to occur at an early age. Those born with Progeria typically live to their mid-teens to early twenties.

Ana is from Minas Gerais in Brazil and met Neymar on Monday following the forward's game against Bolivia.

After giving his biggest fan a hug, Ana exclaimed: "I am very happy to meet Neymar."

Neymar has one more international game to play before heading back to Paris.
