Paris Saint-Germain's Neymar Jr. has shown his generous side yet again this season after he offered his jersey to a young supporter, who had rushed onto the pitch to meet his idol. In what will be a day to remember for the young fan, he was left in tears after this hear-warming gesture by the Brazilian superstar. 

Neymar Jr was booed by the opposition fans as he was making way off the pitch to be substituted in the 91st minute. But, he held no grudge when a young fan invaded the pitch to get a glimpse of the Brazilian icon.

The boy burst into tears upon seeing Neymar Jr and pointed at his jersey. The prolific forward took the boy in his arms and walked away off the pitch, before handing over his jersey to the tearful young lad.

However, this is not the first time Neymar has done something of this sort. Earlier in the season, the PSG offered his shirt to a fan named Zakaria in their 4-2 win over Nimes. The fan later took to Instagram to thank the Brazilan.

Meanwhile, the world's most expensive player had an almost anonymous performance before his latest shirt-giving incident. Coming on the back of their Champions League 3-2 loss at the hands of Liverpool, PSG struggled in the first half, but later came from behind to win 3-1 against Rennes and maintain their perfect start to Ligue 1 with a sixth consecutive win.

Neymar Jr. assisted Thomas Meunier to fire the French champions into the lead, which was followed by Angel Di Maria's thunderbolt strike that drew Thomas Tuchel's men on level terms. Substitute Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting added the third as he ensured that 3 points was going back to Paris. With this, PSG now sits on thetop of the league with maximum points, five clear of second-placed Lille.

Paris Saint Germain now face a stiff run of fixtures ahead. They will face Stade Reims and OGC Nice with a gap of two days in between, which is followed by a trip to Serbia to face Red Star Belgrade in the UEFA Champions League.
