Diving is, outside of Joey Barton's Twitter account and Charlie Adam's head, the ugliest part of football. Sometimes even the dives themselves can be very ugly indeed. It seems like seldom a game goes by without a player being accused of diving. In fact, it feels like it's becoming more and more frequent.

NEYMAR can score sensational goals and leave defenders in his wake - but social media is also mocking him for the other side of his game. The Brazilian is a divisive player, capable of magical moments, but is also prone to diving and theatrics. He took a tumble in the South Americans' opener against Switzerland and proceeded to roll over several times. And Twitter has not been kind to Neymar, with memes racking up millions of hits on the social media platform. One such video shows the year-old Paris Saint-Germain forward rolling on the Rostov Arena pitch, before tumbling down roads, dirt tracks and mountains. His theatrics were also used to mock him knocking someone over and then being spun in a web by a spider. And Guardado has said: "We all know Neymar, it's not up to me or us to judge, but the referees and Fifa. Sign in. All Football.
But his rainbow flick and that goal more than made up for it with some fans. Also: Nigeria's awesome kit helps melt Iceland. Diving: It's not just limited to swimming pools and ocean cliffs. On the way to the victory, Neymar, barely touched by defenders, flopped on his back as if to hint the refs should call a foul. The referee went along with Neymar at first, but consulted the tournament's controversial new video assistant referee system and changed his mind. Penalty, flop, or new hot summer dance move? The Matrix has found its new actor," said one Twitter user. Neymar for Best Actor. FifaWorldCup18 pic. That dive deserves an TheAcademy award!
