Thiruvananthapuram: TV channels in Kerala yesterday went berserk, claiming injured Brazilian footballer Neymar was likely to come to the state to undergo ayurveda treatment for his injured back.
TV channels said that the Brazilian Football Federation had gotten in touch with Kerala Chief Minister Oommen Chandy.
However, Chandy said nothing of that sort has happened. "I spoke to Health Minister VS Sivakumar, who called up leading doctors of the state-run ayurveda college here.
They got details of Neymar's injury through the internet and (were) studying what sort of treatment should be adopted.
We are only going to decide whether to put up a proposal to Neymar whether he wants our treatment," Chandy said.
