    The Brazilian immediately ran to the corner flag where he was joined by his compatriot Vinicius Jr, who performed his trademark dance with the goalscorer.

    The pair sent a message to Spanish agent Pedro Bravo following his racist abuse of Vinicius this week.

    Bravo accused the winger of disrespecting opponents and likened his antics to that of a monkey.

    That was followed up by Atletico fans calling Vinicius a monkey ahead of kick-off at the Wanda Metropolitano.

    Vinicius has also spoken out on the issue and has insisted that he will continue to dance and celebrate as it makes him happy.

    In a heartfelt video, he said: “They say that happiness bothers.

    “The happiness of a victorious black Brazilian in Europe bothers much more.

    “But my desire to win, my smile and the sparkle in my eyes are much bigger than that.

    “You can’t even imagine it. I was a victim of a xenophobic and racist comment. But none of that started yesterday.”

    Vinicius is well known for his dance moves and even performed on stage with Brazilian pop star Ludmilla in the summer.

    He has been ever present for Real on the pitch this season too with five goals and three assists in seven appearances in all competitions.
