The FC Barcelona defender Dani Alves was preparing for a corner kick on Sunday's match when he noticed a banana tossed at him onto the pitch. Without missing a beat, Alves responds to the racist gesture excellently by picking it up and eating it.

"We have suffered [racism] in Spain for some time," Alves said after the game. "We aren't going to change things easily"

Friends, teammates, and fans responded to Alves' actions with pride in a similarly humorous fashion on Instagram and Twitter.
