There's a lot of love for Neymar on Twitter after he scored the quickest goal in Olympic history


It took just 15 seconds for Neymar to send Brazil on their way to a fourth Olympic final, within sight of an elusive gold medal.

He forward scored the quickest goal in Olympic history against Honduras in the men's semi-final at the Maracana in Rio.

Neymar's goal bettered Janine Becker of Canada's women's team, who scored with 19 seconds on the clock against Australia on August 4.

And fans were truly amazed:

Brazil fans watched new Manchester City recruit Gabriel Jesus score twice before half-time, and goals from Marquinhos, Luan and a Neymar penalty wrapped up a 6-0 rout of Honduras.

The hosts will head into the final against either their World Cup tormentors Germany or Nigeria, having scored 12 goals and conceded none.
