Suarez, Sagna and more: Footballers go bananas in support of Alves

Stars of world football come out in support of Dani Alves' anti-racism message by posting pictures of themselves eating bananas

Liverpool striker Luis Suarez and Arsenal defender Bacary Sagna have become the latest footballers to deliver an anti-racism message in support of Barcelona’s Dani Alves.

Alves reacted to having a banana thrown at him by peeling it and taking a bite during Barca’s 3-2 La Liga victory over Villarreal on Sunday.

Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero posted a photo of himself with Brazilian female player Marta eating bananas in support, as did Liverpool duo Suarez and Philippe Coutinho.

Here are some of the best pictures to emerge on social media over the last two days in support of Alves.
