Report: Villarreal hit with €12k fine

Villareal have revealed the fan who threw a banana at Dani Alves has been banned for life, while fellow footballers have shown support for the Brazilian's cool response.

The Spanish League (LFP) has handed Villarreal a fine of 12,000 euros ($16,000) after one of the club's supporters threw a banana at Barcelona's Dani Alves in a recent game at El Madrigal.

The incident, which occurred during a La Liga game on April 27, received worldwide attention as Alves picked up the banana and ate it, sparking an anti-racism campaign spearheaded by his Barca teammate Neymar.

Villarreal banned the fan, who was later also arrested by police, but the Spanish League had been slow to respond to calls to punish the club.

El Submarino Amarillo could have been hit with a stadium ban but the LFP have reportedly chosen instead to impose a fine, with the EFE news agency claiming Villarreal sources confirmed the figure was 12,000 euros.
