Marcelo takes knee after scoring for Real Madrid

Real Madrid's Brazilian defender Marcelo took the knee after scoring against Eibar in La Liga on Sunday

Real Madrid defender Marcelo took the knee after scoring against Eibar on Sunday, in an apparent show of support for the Black Lives Matter movement.

After scoring Madrid's third goal towards the end of the first half, Marcelo dropped down onto his left knee and raised a clenched right fist in the air.

The gesture has come to represent solidarity with anti-racism protests, particularly in the United States.
