The rape case against Brazilian footballer Neymar has been dropped. The Sao Paulo attorney general's office confirmed on Tuesday that the case was dropped due to lack of evidence. A Brazilian model had accused the star footballer of rape in Paris earlier this year but the PSG star striker called it extortion. The case had become a national obsession in football-crazy Brazil after the model filed a formal complaint in June. The news came on Tuesday as Neymar continued training with his club Paris St Germain in China.
