Chris Eubank Jr and Neymar "go outside and settle the score" after poker battle

Chris Eubank Jr. and Neymar jokingly squared up to each other after a poker battle went the way of the Brazilian footballer.

Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar, 30, made his first in-person appearance at a World Series of Poker event earlier this week, six years after he first qualified for a seat at the table. And he followed that up with a game against British middleweight Eubank Jr.

Neymar might be one of the world's best footballers, but he's also a dab hand on the poker tables, and it seems he taught Eubank a lesson or two as they duelled on Saturday night.

Eubank posted a video of himself with Neymar on Instagram and said: "Look at this guy, straight flush." As the camera zoomed in on the winning hand, the Brazilian star can be heard saying: "Straight flush, my guy."

The video continues with Neymar laughing in the background as a smiling Eubank says: "Straight flush. How does this guy do it? I can't beat this guy. Every hand. The best, huh?"

After Neymar delivered a knockout blow on the tables, the two men popped outside for a quick photoshoot as Eubank demonstrated where he might have the upper-hand on the former Barcelona man.

In separate snaps, the two friends held boxing poses as Eubank wrote: "He beat me in a big pot with a straight flush!! So we had to go outside & settle the score."

Brazil ace Neymar, wearing double denim and a baseball cap, looks decidedly sheepish in the pictures as he gets his guard up against former the former WBA interim middleweight title holder.
