Ah yes, the traditional banana hurled at a black player. Euro 2012 is officially on!
The potassium missile came from the Croatian fans, who we had thought were pretty chill. It happened during yesterday's match with Italy, who have a couple of black players, including Mario Balotelli, who specifically threatened to kill any banana-throwers. Details aren't clear—UEFA is looking into it after a photographer snapped a shot of a steward removing the banana, although they haven't received any official complaints.
