Dublin Fire Brigade has issued an unusual piece of advice to Halloween revellers - hit the ground like Neymar if celebrations get out of hand!
October 31 is a popular night for hitting the town in costume, with partygoers looking to outdo themselves with all sorts of outlandish get-ups.
That, not to mention copious amounts of alcohol and liberal use of jack-o'-lanterns, could prove a recipe for disaster for the unwary.
Fortunately firemen in the capital of the Republic of Ireland were on hand to offer some timely, if rather cheeky, recommendations.
“STOP, DROP & ROLL. If you find yourself in a position where your costume, or clothes, catch fire do the #Neymar," the brigade's Twitter account advised, accompanied with a video of the Paris Saint-Germain star taking a rather theatrical tumble whilst on international duty with Brazil.
“Running will only fan the flames and help the fire spread. STOPPING, DROPPING & ROLLING will smother the flames.”

Neymar's tendency to go down easily made him a figure of fun at the 2018 World Cup, overshadowing a solid return to form following his extended injury lay-off caused by a broken metatarsal bone in February.
In Russia the forward scored on two occasions as Brazil advanced to the quarter-finals unbeaten, only to see their campaign end there as they were downed 2-1 by Belgium - Neymar left in anguish as a late chance to level was turned away by Thibaut Courtois.
