Two of the group are painted black – the role of Balthazar is often played by a white man in blackface in Spain.

Iniesta, who plays for Vissel Kobe in Japan, has not responded to criticism.BBC Radio 1 Extra presenter Nick Bright said:

“I love Iniesta like few other public figures, let alone athletes, he seems a supremely humble man and team-mate,” said journalist and author Musa Okwonga.
“I just wonder how you can share a dressing room and so many trophies with Eric Abidal and Dani Alves and still not realise this is not cool. It’s very disappointing.”

“I cannot believe in 2019 famous people are still doing or are around people doing ‘blackface’ and tweeting it, where are your friends Iniesta?!

“Didn’t anyone say, ‘Andres, I don’t think this is the one bro’.”
