Brazilian superstar Neymar has been heavily criticised in the aftermath of his tribute to famous scientist Stephen Hawking, who passed away aged 76 on Wednesday.


Hawking suffered from motor neurone disease, which meant that, from the age of 21, his health gradually deteriorated and he was forced to live out the majority of his life in a wheelchair with special speech software.

That didn’t stop him becoming one of the most loved and revered people ever in his field and, understandably, many around the world wanted to pay heartfelt tributes after his death.


But Neymar, who is currently injured and unable to play for PSG, got his own homage to Hawking terribly wrong, posting a picture of himself in a wheelchair with the caption: “You have to have a positive attitude and get the best out of the situation you are in.”

Understandably, there was some backlash.
