 Rape allegations:  Brazilian police ask for more time to investigate accusation against Neymar

Police in Sao Paolo will be given 30 more days to look into the woman's claim

Brazilian authorities say police have asked for more time to investigate a model’s allegation that she was raped by Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar. 

The Public Ministry’s communications office said on Monday that police in Sao Paulo would be given 30 more days to look into the woman’s claims. 

Najila Trindale went to police in Brazil’s biggest city on May 31 to file a formal accusation against Neymar, alleging he raped her at a Paris hotel earlier that month.

The player denies the allegation. 

Neymar is also being investigated by police in Rio de Janeiro over his posting of images of his accuser on social media without her authorisation.
