The PSG man reacted as if he had received a significant injury after an apparent stamp by Miguel Layun in the second half, but instead of receiving sympathy from social media, it has been quite the opposite - and one video in particular which shows a quick-thinking rat evading a cat has been doing the rounds.

Another viral clip showed what it mockingly said was a "Neymar family reunion."
