Brazilian Striker Walks Off Pitch After Suffering Racist Abuse In Bolivia

The 34-year-old striker said Thursday that he had been discriminated from the kick-off and that he preferred to leave the field because his family was watching the game.

"Every time I had the ball, they'd shout: Monkey! Gorilla!" he said. "A precedent must be set once and for all.

"I have a family, children. My family was watching the game on the television.

"We endure certain things, but I endured up to my limit.

"This is not football. We are all equal.

"I am not different because of the colour of my skin or perhaps for being Brazilian. God created just one race: The human race."
