WATCH: Neymar attempts incredible free-kick from Jimmy Kimmel’s rooftop

The Barcelona superstar took to the talk show host's rooftop to attempt a daring free-kick across Hollywood Boulevard

The world finally knows all about Neymar, thanks to his long overdue appearance on popular talk show Jimmy Kimmel. 

But instead of sitting comfortably on Jimmy’s sofa, the Brazilian superstar took to the sunny rooftop of the studio to show off his free-kick tekkers.

Next stop… Hollywood

Watching on from the studio, Jimmy set Neymar the challenge of striking a ball from the top of the studio rooftop, across Hollywood Boulevard, and into a full-size goal on the adjacent rooftop.

The rooftop is several stories up, which makes it all the more tricky… and terrifying.

Check it out:

Despite his brilliance, the 25-year-old failed in his first two attempts, with the ball falling into the road below.

But Neymar produced the goods on his third go, beating the goalkeeper (yes, there was a goalkeeper as well) with a lovely shot into the bottom corner.

It went down pretty well.

Neymar is enjoying some much-needed downtime following Barcelona’s strenuous season, which saw the Catalan giants lose out to rivals Real Madrid in La Liga, while they were knocked out in the quarter-final stage of the Champions League by eventual finalists Juventus.

Prior to his appearance on Jimmy Kimmel, Neymar was also spotted enjoying the NBA Finals with Formula One star Lewis Hamilton.
