Real Madrid star, Marcelo dedicates goal to George Floyd

Marcelo paid tribute to George Floyd after scoring Real Madrid’s third goal against Eibar on Sunday evening.

The Brazilian took a knee after finding the net in a nod to the Black Lives Matter movement.

Protests have taken place across the United States and the world after George Floyd was killed by a policeman in Minneapolis on May 25.

The gesture of taking a knee has become synonymous with the protests against systemic racism in sport in the United States and now players are using their platforms to show their support for the movement in Europe.

Many Bundesliga teams have taken a knee before recent matches, while Jadon Sancho and Achraf Hakimi have been among those to dedicate goals to George Floyd.
