Banana thrown at Brazilian players during their friendly against Tunisia

The Brazilian Football Federation condemned the actions of the unidentified fan and reinforced its stance to "fight against racism."

Tottenham forward Richarlison was subject to racial abuse during Brazil's 5-1 win over Tunisia. While celebrating his team's second goal on Tuesday, a banana was hurled at him. The Brazilian players celebrating near the corner flag also had another object, that appeared to be a water bottle thrown at them.

Manchester United midfielder Fred was seen kicking away the banana as he stood up for his teammates.

Prior to the game, Brazil used the match as a platform to speak up against racism, with the players posing before kickoff with a sign that said: “Without our black players, we wouldn’t have stars on our shirt” — a reference to the five stars above the team crest that represents its five World Cup titles.

The Brazilian Football Federation condemned the actions of the unidentified fan and reinforced its stance to "fight against racism." Earlier in October, winger Vinicius Junior who plays for Real Madrid was also subjected to racism by rival fans ahead of his team's derby clash against Atletico Madrid on September 18
