Neymar Jr has seen a phenomenal rise in his career and equally dizzying lows and that will be the subject of discussion in his upcoming Netflix docuseries, 'Neymar: The Chaos'. The three-parter will tell the story of Neymar's life and his path to success with the multiple teams he's played for over the years. The Brazil forward has chalked up a string of world records including the fastest-ever goal in the Olympics. He netted one 15 seconds into the match against Honduras in 2016.

Adding to this is the fact that he is one of the most highly-paid athletes in the world after donning Brazil's yellow at 18. The debut and the journey forward came with its share of great moments and disappointments as he went on to become the second-highest scorer of all-time for the team after legend Pele. A stint with FC Barcelona elevated his status as one of the modern-day greats and he now does what he does best with Paris Saint-Germain. Here's everything we know so far about the much-anticipated docuseries.
