Barcelona and some other players have backed Daniel Alves after he produced a clever riposte to a racist taunt involving a banana when taking a corner kick during Sunday's 3-2 La Liga win at Villarreal.Alves, who has previously taken a stand against racism at matches in Spain, grabbed the banana thrown in front of him onto the pitch, quickly peeled it, and took a bite before tossing away the skin and completing the kick.UEFA has been running a high-profile campaign to try to counter racist behavior and promote respect for the game.
