Neymar wins small fortune with a very rare poker hand

Some people just have all the luck.

Neymar has just won what would be a fortune to most people on one poker hand.

The 23 year old reportedly earns €200,000 a week, so €17,810 isn't exactly a big pay day for him, but the Barcelona forward won the hand with a royal flush, the best poker hand possible.

The odds of such a hand are 0.00000154%, so around the same odds as Neymar playing for Manchester United this season.

Sure, Neymar plays for Barcelona, is a brand ambassador for the world's largest poker site, and is exorbitantly wealthy and lucky. But is he happy?

Yeah, probably.
