Brazil’s son Neymar Jr, and Brazil’s adopted son, Lewis Hamilton, served us with just the crossover we needed. It is not often that we see the greats of the sporting world collide even if it is over an ignorant scooter ride or a “F*** You” in return for the said ignorance. However, the PSG star’s celebration involved a crossover with another sport, which surfaced on his Instagram that may also lead to his club fuming even more.

It was reported by French outlet L’Equipe that the Brazilian has apparently angered his club as he elected to ditch title celebrations by not going to Strasbourg and instead went to Monaco to be a part of F1 racing weekend. And his absence is now being looked at as an act of “provocation” among the PSG hierarchy. While this may have rubbed the club the wrong way, a celebratory post involving Maria Sharapova from Monaco weekend may be the final nail in the coffin.

If someone had more fun than Neymar Jr. during the Monaco Grand Prix as the Formula 1 circus went racing, it was Maria Sharapova. And while she spent her weekend making fun of Frederic Arnault and supporting Lewis, she also found herself in a crossover with the world of soccer as the PSG star updated his official Instagram account, which featured pictures with her. Interestingly, this update for Neymar Jr. comes after already surfacing rumors of his departure and this act perhaps can cement the said tussle with the management.

Apart from partying with the soccer star Neymar, Sharapova also made headlines for siding with her friend Lewis Hamilton

The tennis beauty was a Tag Heuer VIP guest who presented the pole position award to F1’s reigning champion Max Verstappen. She was there for the weekend as a guest of Tag Heuer. But despite coming to the race weekend as a guest of Red Bull sponsors, like many others, she snubbed Verstappen.

Like Tom Holland and Neymar Jr., she picked Lewis Hamilton when asked who she was supporting. Sharapova said, “I’ve been a huge admirer and a friend of Lewis, so I’m hoping he’s able to pull through.”
