Brazilian football star Neymar has become a cartoon character in a comic strip series which includes members of his family and friends.

The 21-year-old has been immortalised by cartoonist Mauricio de Sousa who has also drawn the likes of Pelé and Ronaldinho.

The 68-page comic "Neymar Jr" follows in the tradition of comics such as Roy of the Rovers, a British comic about the life of fictional footballer Roy Race.

The footballer, who is Brazil's highest paid player, is already a household name thanks to images on billboards, TV and in newspaper ads plus an appearance on the cover of a football video game released last year.
