Uruguay’s Suarez banned for four months
Uruguay striker Luis Suarez has been suspended from all football-related activity for four months for biting Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini, the BBC reports.
Fifa’s independent disciplinary committee imposed the ban after finding the 27-year-old guilty of misconduct.
Suarez has also been banned for nine international matches, ruling him out of the rest of the World Cup.
The incident occurred during Tuesday’s 2014 Fifa World Cup Group D game, which Uruguay won to qualify for the last 16.
