Brazil manager Tite has urged Vinicius Junior to continue to be his expressive self in the face of the racist abuse aimed his way in recent weeks.

Criticism of Vinicius' goal celebrations quickly took an abhorrent turn when the Real Madrid winger's race was brought into things, with Atletico Madrid forced to apologise for abuse aimed at him during the recent Madrid derby.

Vinicius has insisted that the abuse will not impact his performances as a player, and now his national team boss Tite has urged him to keep doing all the things that make him unique.
