Pic: Here's the X-ray that shows Neymar's broken back

We're not doctors, but this looks bloody painful.

We all woke up to the news this morning that Neymar's World Cup is over. A knee in the back from Colombia's Juan Zuniga saw the 22-year-old leave the field on a stretcher and the Brazilian team doctor confirmed overnight that the talisman had suffered a broken vertebra, meaning he would have to spend at least six weeks on the sidelines.

The Barcelona star is reported to have returned to the Brazilian training camp but there were still emotional scenes at Rio airport as he boarded an ambulance while the rest of his team hopped on the bus.

Brazilian TV also showed the X-ray of his injury, which very clearly shows the break in his back, as posted on the Daily Mail.
