The Brazilian police said that Najila Trindade and her former partner are to be charged over her rape allegation against football star Neymar.

Trindade, a Brazilian model, faces charges of procedural fraud, slanderous denunciation and extortion.

Her former partner Estivens Alves is accused of disclosing erotic content, which was then published online.

It comes after Trindade went to police in the Brazilian city of Sao Paulo earlier this year alleging that Neymar raped her at a Paris hotel in May.

Neymar, who plays for Paris St-Germain, had denied the claims and said their relations were consensual.

The case against Neymar, 27, was dropped at the end of July, with police blaming a lack of evidence against the footballer.
