During a La Liga match on Sunday, Barcelona's Brazillian defender Dani Alves was faced with a racial taunt on the field involving a banana.
Dani Alves was ready to take a corner kick, when a banana thrown from the stands landed at his feet. The Barcelona wingback reacted by picking up the banana, peeling its skin and taking a bite. Then he continued with the corner kick.
His injured team-mate Neymar, watching the match at home, promptly reacted by posting on Instagram a picture of himself and his son while eating a banana with the text, "We are all monkeys".
In a unique show of solidarity, many footballers followed his example, including Roberto Carlos, Mario Balotelli, Hulk, Sergio Aguero, Marta, Willian, David Luiz, Oscar, Luis Suarez, Philippe Coutinho, Lucas Moura, Alexander Song, Robert Lewandowski and Fernandinho.
