Tottenham and Brazil star Richarlison has banana thrown at him in disgraceful scenes


A banana was thrown at Tottenham striker Richarlison on Tuesday night as he scored against Tunisia in an international friendly. The Brazilian put his nation 2-1 up before celebrating in front of a group of home supporters.

Footage showed several items thrown at Richarlison as he celebrated his exquisite goal against Tunisia, his third goal in his last two international appearances. Manchester United midfielder Fred kicked one object, which may also have been a banana, away off of the pitch before the fruit was hurled on to the pitch, landing at the feet of Richarlison.

Anti-racism has been at the heart of the thoughts of the Brazil team at the moment after Vinicius Jr was the subject of racist abuse. Though the disgraceful acts of some Tunisian fans show that they will not receive support from all fanbases.

Prior to kick off, the Brazil team lifted a sign that read: “Without our black players, we wouldn’t have stars on our shirts.” But the act was booed by some Tunisian fans, with their national anthem also attempted to be drowned out.
