Football is one of the most popular sports we have in the world. Despite it being a favorite to many people, some things do happen in the game that are not good. Racism is one of the biggest challenges that faced football in the past years. Although it is still being witnessed, it is a great advancement from what it was years back.
Some years back, Dani Alves a Barcelona football player at the time surprised the world when he ate a banana while the match was on. While playing against their opponents, Villarreal the fans showed racism as they threw bananas at him as a sign of rejection. Dani did not however mind them and continued to play.
At one instance when he was taking a corner kick, Dani took one of the bananas that had been thrown at him, pilled it and took a bite before he continued playing. His move was heroic as it sensitized the world on the need to stop racism. Him eating the banana was a message to the world that people should eat away racism.
