    Dani Alves eats banana thrown at him during soccer match

    (CNN) -- Kevin-Prince Boateng walked off during an AC Milan soccer match in Italy, but Dani Alves turned to humor in dealing with racist abuse during a Spanish league game.
    The Brazilian was taking a corner during Barca's 3-2 win at Villarreal's El Madrigal stadium Sunday when a banana landed at his feet.
    Maintaining his composure, Alves picked up the banana, peeled it and took a bite and got on with the game.
    "Dani Alves owned him," tweeted the Brazilian's teammate Neymar. "Take That bunch of Racists. We are all Monkeys So What."
    Former England international Gary Lineker , who played for Barcelona, also applauded Alves' quick thinking.
    "Utterly brilliant reaction from Alves," tweeted Lineker. "Treat the racist berk with complete disdain."

    I think the real problem here is that Barca won.

    A public figure like that shouldn't eat things thrown at them from a crowd. Halloween candy and all that.

    I like it.
    I have CDO, it's like OCD but the letters are in alphabetical order like they should be.

    It is spreading like wildfire across Europe.. with celebs, fellow pros and news casters all eating bananas in picture and on TV and saying we are all monkeys.

    Oh and they caught the guy and he has been banned for life from the stadium by the club. Legal action cant be far behind.
