Once Brazil's goalkeeper Weverton, dived to his left saving a penalty kick by Germany's Nils Petersen - the stage was set for Neymar. The forward and captain of Brazil's team then delivered the winning penalty kick giving Brazil it's first Olympic football gold medal - and a bit of revenge from their 7-1 semifinal loss to the Germans two years ago in the last World Cup.
In the moments that follow we see on Neymar's face a dramatic example of an under-appreciated nonverbal fact: Intense emotional pleasure (as is seen here) or physical pleasure very often has a virtually identical expression to that of dramatic emotional or physical pain.
If you didn't have any context and didn't know who Neymar was - most people would interpret the expression above as a man who is in severe pain.
