Neymar breaks FIFA rules by wearing banned Beats by Dre headphones to a press conference at the World Cup.

Neymar has broken one of the World Cup rules by wearing Beats by Dre headphones to a press conference this week.

The Brazil star, who is fit to play against Colombia in Friday's quarter-final, was spotted wearing the headphones before speaking to the media on Wednesday.

That particular brand of headphones has been banned by FIFA after they sealed a rights deal with Sony for the tournament.

All players competing in the tournament were said to have been given free headsets by Sony after being told that they were not permitted to wear Beats' headphones during media commitments or matchdays.
