Neymar has undergone successful surgery on his fractured metatarsal but will be out for at least six weeks, Paris Saint-Germain have confirmed.

The Brazilian forward suffered a fractured metatarsal and a sprained ankle after rolling awkwardly in a Ligue 1 clash against Marseille.

"Neymar Jr underwent surgery today at the Materdei Hospital in Belo Horizonte," read a statement on the club's official website.

"The operation, conducted by Doctor Rodrigo Lasmar, was successful. The operation consisted of the laying of a screw associated with a transplant fixed at the level of the lesion of the fifth metatarsal of the right foot."

"Re-education will begin immediately under the direction of a club physiotherapist. Neymar's injury will be assessed in six weeks' time to establish a possible date for his return to training."
