A BARCELONA player made some racist supporters look a bit silly when they threw a banana on the pitch.

Instead of ignoring the gesture, Dani Alves picked up the fruit and ate it, before taking a corner.

The 30-year-old Brazilian defender was playing against Villarreal and his team also had the last laugh on the pitch, by recovering from two goals down to win 3-2.

    I remember seeing exactly the same thing happening at the vetch field many years ago involving Garth Crooks. Here is what Gary Lineker had to say about it, "Utterly brilliant reaction from Alves. Treat the racist berk with complete disdain!". I think we can all agree with that, except the racists of course, who don't count as part of the human race anyway!
