Before the Madrid derby on Sunday, Atletico Madrid fans were recorded racially insulting Real Madrid’s Brazil player Vinicius Junior outside their Metropolitano Stadium.

Hundreds of Atletico supporters could be heard singing “Vinicius, you are a monkey, you are monkey” in a video posted on social media by radio station Cope in the run-up to the game, which Real won 2-1.

Throughout the game, local media reported hearing monkey noises and yells of “Vinicius, die.”

Atletico Madrid did not reply quickly to a request for comment, but tweeted: “Support Atleti with passion and respect for opponents.”

Last week, Pedro Bravo, the president of the Spanish Football Agents Association, was chastised for telling Vinicius to quit “monkeying around” when celebrating goals, with a number of Brazilian athletes, including Neymar and Dani Alves, calling the remarks racist.

Bravo explained that the remark was not meant to be regarded as racist, but rather was a typical turn of phrase in Spanish.

Vinicius and Real, on the other hand, both issued comments condemning the racial insults the player has seen throughout his career.

Real’s first goal was celebrated by Vinicius and scorer Rodrygo by dancing in front of the Atletico fans, as Real continued their unbeaten start to the season.

Vinicius tweeted a photo of himself celebrating with Selecao teammate Rodrygo after the game, stating, “Dance anywhere you want.” His international teammate Gabriel Jesus of Arsenal stated earlier on Sunday that his dancing celebration for his Premier League goal against Brentford was dedicated to his pal.
