Madrid: Barcelona full-back Dani Alves had a banana thrown at him as he took a corner in his side's match at Villarreal on Sunday -- and decided to eat it.
The Brazilian picked up the banana and took a bite out of it before continuing on with the game.
Alves has been a regular target of racist abuse during his 12 years in Spain with both Sevilla and Barcelona.
Someone in the crowd just threw a banana at Dani Alves. Picked it up, peeled it, ate it, and proceeded to take the corner. Top response.— Gary Lineker (@GaryLineker) April 27, 2014
