Brazil report banana thrown at Richarlison in Paris friendly
A banana was thrown at Richarlison during Brazil's friendly against Tunisia in Paris, the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) said.
Richarlison scored the Selecao's second goal in a 5-1 win at the Parc des Princes on Tuesday.
But the victory in Brazil's final match before the World Cup was soured by reports of a racist gesture aimed at the Tottenham forward.
Video footage appeared to show a banana land near Richarlison as he celebrated his goal, and the CBF confirmed the incident on social media.
"Unfortunately, after the goal, a banana was thrown on the pitch towards Richarlison, scorer of the second Brazilian goal," a short statement read.
"The CBF reinforces its position to combat racism and repudiates any prejudiced manifestation."
