Viral Video Chart: Neymar's World Cup message to Brazil takes the top spot

An emotional World Cup message from footballer Neymar da Silva Santos Júnior is the most shared video on the web this week.

The clip, released by the Brazilian football confederation on Saturday 5 July - before the team's 7-1 defeat to Germany - sees the player thank fans for their support following a back injury which knocked him out of the tournament.

The speech from the World Cup poster boy has amassed close to 60,000 shares and over 10m views since Saturday.

That's enough to put it above Irn-Bru's amusing 'IRN in our blood' video and Lego's 'Everything is NOT awesome' campaign.
