Brazilian Police Finish Neymar Rape Claim Probe

Brazilian police say they have finished the investigation of the rape accusation against Paris Saint-Germain player Neymar but its conclusion will only be made public on Tuesday.

Sao Paulo police investigator Juliana Lopes Bussacos delivered her report on the case on Monday.

Brazilian model Najila Trindade has accused the 27-year-old striker of raping her in a Paris hotel in May. He denied the accusation and says their relations were consensual.

The Associated Press doesn't name alleged sexual assault victims unless they make their identities public, which Trindade did in several interviews.

Neymar is currently in a preseason tour of Asia with the French club.

He is also under investigation by Rio de Janeiro police for publishing images of his accuser on social media without her authorization.
