Neymar is suffering from an iron deficiency known as anemia, Barcelona have discovered.

The Brazilian was diagnosed with the condition after complaining of fatigue during the 8-0 friendly win over his former club Santos.

"Neymar has significantly low iron levels in his blood," the player's father Neymar da Silva Santos told TV Globo. "The physical tiredness he has had is not normal and is quite worrying.

"As he has almost no fat to lose, losing that muscle mass is troubling."
