Footballer tweets support for Alves banana incident

Manchester city striker Sergio Aguero has posted a picture of himself eating a banana in support of Barcelona Defender Dani Alves.

Alves had a banana thrown at him on during Sunday's win at Villareal, but proceeded to peel it, take a bite and then take his corner.

He has been a regular target of racist abuse during his 12 years in Spain playing for both Sevilla and Barcelona, with references to monkeys the most common insult levied at the defender.
