In what many expected to be a classic World Cup match between Italy and Uruguay, it turned out to be a rather drab affair as the South Americans – although needing a win – sat back and put most of their team behind a possession based Italian outfit.

Although the Azzurri were still unimpressive on the ball, the game completely turned on its head when Claudio Marchisio was sent off for a rather harsh red card, before the incident hogging the headlines occurred.

Luis Suarez, already twice banned previously for the same episode, decided to bite Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini on the shoulder.

Uruguay did grab the winning goal via a Diego Godin header shortly afterwards, but the game will be remembered for Suarez’s crazy appetite.

And the world has reacted to this insane event.

    Luis Suarez is a brilliant, exciting player to watch but his behaviour has no place in any sport! If anything like this was to happen again he should be banned for life. He is well payed for playing a sport that he loves and should realise how lucky he is having the support of a global institution like Liverpool FC. Even their patience must be wearing thin! The guy needs counselling and a gum shield!
