😷✈️🇧🇷 Neymar, Thiago Silva jets into Brazil as France goes into lockdown

Paris Saint-Germain teammates Neymar and Thiago have jetted back to Brazil as coronavirus pandemic forces France into a strick lockdown regime. 

The Globo newspaper reports that the pair flew out of France hours after French President Emmanuel Macron imposed a 15-day mandatory isolation order on citizens in a bid to contain the spread of the highly contagious virus.

The presidential decree, that came into effect on Tuesday, means that people can only leave their homes for groceries and medicine, or to exercise.
