Mario Balotelli is the latest high-profile footballer to pose with a banana in support of FC Barcelona defender Dani Alves, who reacted to racist taunts by eating a banana that was thrown at him during Sunday's match at Villareal.
The Italian striker accompanied the shot with the message: #WeAreAllMonkeys, #NoToRacism. Siamo tutti scimmie!
It follows similar pictures posted on social media by Neymar, Sergio Aguero and Luis Suarez after Alves' unconventional response to the incident.
