Late in Barcelona's match against Villarreal, a fan threw a banana at Brazilian Dani Alves as he was about to take a corner. 

In what has historically been a show of racism, Alves calmly scoffed at the offending move, picked up the banana, took a bite of it and took his corner kick. 

Alves 1. Racism 0. 

In the aftermath, Alves opened up about the incident. 

Teammate Neymar showed his support for Alves and made his stand against racism on Instagram afterward. 

Sky later reported that Villarreal banned the offending fan.
