Neymar made a heartwarming visit to Hutchinson-Gilford syndrome sufferer Ana Clara between Brazil's international games.

After the eight-year-old girl's video request to meet the world's most expensive footballer went viral the Brazilian didn't let her down.

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.

Brazil have already qualified for the 2018 World Cup but face Chile in a dead rubber late on Tuesday night.

Asking Ana how many Brazil might win by, she replied: "Ten!"

"Wow, what pressure you put me on now," joked back Neymar.

Following his meet, Neymar took to Instagram to upload some pictures and captioned: "Dream as much as you can, always do. Never give up, Ana Clara."
