On Sunday, Barcelona defender Dani Alves performed a silent show of resistance to racism which has caught the attention of players and fans across the world.

During a match against Villarreal, opposing fans threw a banana onto the field at Alves as he was lining up a corner kick. Alves calmly ate the banana, and now his simple, humorous act has led to a wave of support on social media.

Brazilian teammate Neymar posted a photo eating a banana with his son.
