American multinational corporation, Nike has officially cut ties with Brazilian footballer, Neymar Jnr. According to Nike, the major reason the company stopped working with the striker is he “refused to co-operate in a good faith investigation” into an allegation of sexual assault. Neymar was accused of forcing one of Nike’s employees into performing oral sex in 2016. This was reported to Nike in 2018 with investigations, now declared inconclusive, starting the same year. This allegation has, however, been denied by Neymar. “Neymar Jr will vigorously defend himself against these baseless attacks in case any claim is presented, which did not happen so far,” his spokesperson told the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) newspaper.
