THE GOSSIP: The 31-year-old, who is currently recovering from ankle surgery, is truly enjoying the stardom and limelight at the prestigious Monte Carlo. He was spotted meeting a host of Hollywood stars, including the likes of Tom Holland, Orlando Bloom and Michael Douglas at the venue earlier.

The Brazilian skipped his team’s title celebrations earlier last weekend to attend the Monaco Grand Prix, something that has not gone down well with the Parisian club amid rumours of a possible PSG exit this summer.

This time, however, he was joined by PSG teammates Marco Verratti and Gianluigi Donnarumma by the track to watch the action.
