Dilma Rousseff took to her Twitter account to give her support for the Brazilian right-back.

Dani Alves reacted to a banana being thrown at him in Sunday’s game against Villarreal on Sunday by peeling and then eating the offending item.

“It’s something that has become commonplace in stadiums,” wrote Brazil’s premier.

“It was a bold and strong response against racism in the sport.”

“Let’s show that our strength, in football and in life, comes from our pride in our ethnic diversity.”
