Brazil star Neymar has seen his Twitch account suspended following the sharing of Richarlison’s mobile phone number while on a gaming live stream.
Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar was unwinding playing video games when he had an incoming call from his Brazil international team-mate last month. Neymar turned his phone around to show the camera and Richarlison’s number was clearly on show to viewers of the live stream.
Twitch has not revealed the reason behind Neymar’s ban but it is widely reported that it could be for revealing Richarlison’s number and Neymar alluded to that on his Instagram page on Tuesday.

The £198million man appeared to see the funny side, joking about the incident with Richarlison while away on international duty this week.
‘Guys, I got banned from Twitch, if I’m not mistaken for seven days, because of ‘Pombo’ [Richarlison],’ he said on his Instagram story.
The clip, which featured the Everton star, was captioned: ‘I accidentally showed the number of the Richarlison,’ followed by several laughing emojis.
The video live streaming service’s protocols read: ‘Do not invade the privacy of others.
‘It is prohibited to share content that may reveal private personal information about individuals, or their private property, without permission.’
Neymar realised his error in Ocotber with thousands tuned in and he confessed to Richarlison seconds later as the pair went on FaceTime together.

‘I think I’ve just shown your number without meaning to,’ Neymar said. ‘I swear it was an accident.
‘You’re going to have to change your number now.’
Richarlison appeared undeterred by Neymar’s gaffe but sent a warning to viewers that he would take a no-nonsense approach if anybody used the number.
‘Hey guys, whoever calls me is going to be blocked,’ he insisted. ‘Don’t call me.’
Richarlison took to Twitter to reveal that Neymar’s gaffe lead to ‘10,000 texts in five minutes’
He vowed to block anyone who contacted him but his warnings fell on deaf ears with fans
But as Neymar continued to live stream playing Counter Strike – a first-person shooter game – on Twitch at the weekend, Richarlison’s plea was ignored and his phone exploded with texts and calls.
Taking to Twitter, Richarlison revealed he had received tens of thousands of messages courtesy of Neymar’s mistake.
‘5 minutes and already more than 10 thousand messages, thank you @neymarjr,’ he wrote.
In response, Neymar sent four laughing emojis and added, ‘you are loved by the guys !!!!’
