Neymar's private jet is said to be been forced into an emergency landing shortly after leaving Barbados just hours after the PSG forward posed on the runway alongside his sister.

The plane was set to return to Brazil in the early hours of Tuesday morning following celebrations for his 30th birthday as part of his summer break ahead of his return to Ligue 1 action and the World Cup in November.

The former Barcelona star shared a photo of himself and his sister Rafaella Santos next to a plane earlier in the day, and even posted a snap from the sky after take-off.

The Sun cite reports that the aircraft landed safely in the north east of Brazil after the scare, with it unclear who else was on board.

Neymar, as well as sister Rafaella and his girlfriend Bruna Biancardi, had been spotted in Miami earlier in the week.

The Brazil icon was also posed alongside British boxer Chris Eubank Jr. after they had faced off in a celebrity poker tournament.

While the talented forward has split his loyalties between clubs during his career – Neymar's dedication to his sister Rafaella has been continuous.

As well as regular social media offerings that feature the close siblings, Neymar is almost always available to celebrate his sister’s birthday.

Neymar has unusually received suspensions and suffered from injuries around March 11, which is Rafaella’s day of celebration – being free on that day for seven of eight seasons.

Model Rafaella hit the mainstream after starring in a Beats By Dre advert for the 2014 World Cup, with Neymar once writing about his sister: "My heart is yours, my love is yours, my smile is yours, my day, my night, my longing, my best company.”

While Neymar has his sister's face tattooed across his arm, Rafaella has smaller inkings over her body which are a tribute to her famous footballer brother.

As well as having his eyes on her left arm, both have the words Fratello and Sorella, which translate to brother and sister respectively.
