OUTRAGE OVER BANANA INSULT TO FOOTBALLER IN SPAIN

0

BARCELONA: A storm over racism in Spanish football erupted on Monday after a fan threw a banana at Barcelona full-back Dani Alves, with Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff and FIFA president Sepp Blatter joining widespread outrage. A spectator —who has since been identified—threw the banana onto the pitch near the 30-year-old Brazilian international as Barcelona played at Villareal on Sunday night. Alves won praise for his reaction, picking up the banana to take a bite before getting on with the game and setting up a goal in Barcelona’s dramatic come-from-behind 3-2 victory.
