Neymar has successfully undergone surgery on his injured right foot, the Brazilian football confederation confirmed on Saturday.

'The operation is over, Neymar is already in his room. It went well,' a spokesman for the CBF said.

The 26-year-old Paris Saint-Germain and Brazil forward was injured on February 25 in a Ligue 1 game against Marseille.

The operation was to repair a cracked fifth metatarsal in his right foot. Neymar was signed by PSG for a world record £198million from Barcelona last year.

Confederation spokesman Vinicius Rodrigues said the surgery took place on Saturday at the Mater Dei Hospital in the southeastern city of Belo Horizonte.

PSG also announced it had been successful. The French league leaders will assess Neymar in six weeks to establish a possible date for his return to training, with reports suggesting the 26-year-old could be out of action for around three months.

A statement on the club's website read: 'Neymar Jr underwent surgery today at the Materdei Hospital in Belo Horizonte.

'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.'

The World Cup starts on June 14 in Russia. Brazil are scheduled to play their first match against Switzerland on June 17.
