Brazilian star Neymar gave one South African a child a moment he'll never forget after intervening when the boy invaded the pitch in a friendly between Brazil and South Africa. 

The boy, who looks about 10 years old, was being ushered off by security staff as Brazil beat South Africa 5-0, when Neymar - who scored a hat trick - intervened.

The Barcelona striker took the boy to meet his teammates and even posed for photos with him, which he later posted on Instagram.
