Real Madrid's Casemiro took to social media to salute the Brazil Olympic football team after his compatriots saw off Germany to win the men's tournament at Rio 2016 on Sunday.

Barcelona star Neymar netted the decisive spot-kick as the Seleçao claimed a maiden gold medal with a penalty shoot-out victory over the Germans at the Maracana, following a final that ended 1-1 after extra-time.

"Congratulations Brazil!"

And Casemiro, who featured for the Brazilians at this summer's Copa América but was not involved in the Olympics, posted a message on his Twitter account reading: "Congratulations Brazil! Gold".

The 24-year-old midfielder faces Real Sociedad at Anoeta on Sunday night (20:15 CEST) as Madrid get their LaLiga campaign underway.
