Villarreal have been fined just under £10,000 over the racial abuse incident involving Barcelona fullback Daniel Alves.

A Villarreal fan racially taunted Alves by throwing a banana at him.

The incident happened in Barcelona's 3-2 win at El Madrigal on April 27, just as Alves was about to take a corner, and he reacted by taking a bite from the banana before discarding it.

A 26-year-old fan, David Campayo Lleo, was later arrested by police and Alves has received support from a number of high profile players on social media.
