Among the things that will stay with us from World Cup 2018 is the image of Brazilian star player Neymar da Silva Santos Júnior falling over as dramatically as humanly possible with the merest suggestion of a touch. It's become the subject of countless memes and GIFs, but we've found out that there's still one more avenue through which we could poke fun at Neymar.

One eagle-eyed art director named Luciano Jacob noticed that the variety of his poses was enough to produce an alphabet, and became convinced that Neymar was “just trying to send us a message.”

Thus, Ney Type was born. Jacob has made his hilarious font available to download for free on Dropbox, as long as it’s used for non-commercial purposes.
