Neymar has taken to social media to offer a public apology to pregnant girlfriend Bruna Biancardi.
The PSG and Brazil forward posted a lengthy statement on Instagram which brought in seven million likes in a matter of hours as he discussed actions in his private life.
The 31-year-old, who also has an 11-year-old son from a previous relationship, called Bruna the 'woman he dreams of' following what he calls 'mistakes', weeks after they announced her pregnancy.
In the statement posted to his 210 million Instagram followers, Neymar said: "I do this for both of you and your family.
"Justifying the unjust. It was not needed. but I need you in OUR life.
"I saw how much you were exposed, how much you suffered through all of this and how much you want to be by my side. And me right beside you
"I risk saying I fail everyday, on and off the field. Only I solve my mistakes in my personal life at home, in my intimacy with my family and friends.
"All of this hit one of the most special people in my life. The woman I dreamed of walking next to me, mother of my child. It has hit his family.
"I can't imagine myself without you. I don't know if we're going to work out, but TODAY you sure do want to try.
"Our purpose will prevail, our love for our baby will win, our love for each other will strengthen us. I love you."

On the pitch, Neymar has been linked with a move away from PSG despite his contract running until the summer of 2025 with a player option for another year.
The forward has spent six seasons in France since leaving Barcelona, scoring 118 goals across 173 fixtures and winning five Ligue 1 titles.
However, the Champions League has evaded Neymar since he won the treble with Barcelona under Luis Enrique - who is set to take over at PSG this summer.
