There's double good news from Brazil striker Neymar Jr's camp. Firstly, the PSG forward has completely recovered from the Coronavirus. Secondly, the skillful striker announced a new deal with German sportswear giant Puma on Saturday, just two weeks after he ended his commercial association with USA's Nike.

Though the exact numbers of Neymar's deal aren't known, considering his 11-year Nike tie-up was worth a whopping $105 million, one can only imagine what the current endorsement is worth.

"I grew up watching legends like Pele, Cruyff, Eusebio and Maradona play in Puma. So it's my honour," Neymar wrote on social media.
