Real Madrid forward Vinícius Jr’s friend, Felipe Silva, was reportedly subjected to a racist incident before Brazil’s friendly match against Guinea.

According to reports, a security guard approached Silva and took a banana out of his pocket, saying “Hands up, this is my gun for you.”

The incident has been reported to the police, and it is unclear at this time what action will be taken. Racism in football has been a persistent issue, with players and fans alike being subjected to abuse both on and off the pitch.

Despite the incident, Vinícius Jr started from the beginning in the match for Brazil. The young forward has been impressive form for Real Madrid last season, and will be hoping to carry that form into the international break.

Vinícius Júnior is one of the players who was hit hard by racism last season in La Liga, especially the one from the fans of Valencia in the last games of the season.

The incident involving Silva is a reminder that racism remains a serious issue in football, and that more needs to be done to combat it.
