Hong Kong actor and singer Jaycee Chan was also in Shanghai this week and shared an Instagram selfie with Neymar, who asked if Jaycee would pass on a hug to his father, the martial arts legend Jackie Chan.
Jaycee posted another seflie of the pair on his own Instagram account, and captioned the picture: “I’ll send him a big warm hug for you. Nice meeting you!”
Lo and behold, the 34-year-old Jaycee also dialled up his dad on Facetime for Neymar to have a chat, with Neymar posting a screenshot of their conversation.
