Neymar diagnosed with anemia

Barcelona star Neymar has been diagnosed with anemia, according to several reports in Spain this afternoon.

Blood test taken by the club this week revealed that the Brazil international is suffering from the disorder, and will now train at a different pace to the rest of the first team squad.

Anemia is a decrease in the number of red blood cells, and can be caused through a lack of iron. Symptoms include exhaustion and shortness of breath.

The Blaugrana are yet to confirm the news officially, but it remains to be seen if the youngster will take part in the rest of the preseason tour of Asia.
