Uruguayan striker bites Italy's Giorgio Chiellini


Luis Suarez is caught up in a fresh controversy after appearing to bite Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini.

Footage from various angles shows Suarez making contact with the defender, but it is as yet unclear whether he bit or headbutted the Italian.

Chiellini then raises an elbow to Suarez, who dives to the ground.

Shortly after Diego Godin scored for Uruguay, putting them 1-0 up and setting them on course to qualify for the last 16.

It is the latest incident in a string of high profile controversies for Luis Suarez, who bit Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic at the end of the 2012/13 Premier League season.
