EXPERTS have stressed that Luis Suarez bit a large Italian footballer and not a tiny child.
With many calling for the Uruguayan striker to be jailed, doctors said Suarezs victim had already made a full recovery, despite pretending to be dead.
Sports injury specialist, Dr Martin Bishop, said: The key difference between biting an opponent and going in hard with your studs up is that biting them is much, much more interesting.
The actual biting injury is usually pretty mild. Mr Suarez is a medium-sized Uruguayan, not a Sumatran tiger.
Dr Bishop added: If Mr Suarez had ran towards the crowd, grabbed a small child and bit it on the face, then yes, you want the police involved at that point.
But, as far as I understand, Mr Suarez has no desire to bite infants. He just wants to bite large professional footballers. Preferably Italian.
Despite what Alan Shearer may tell you, that’s perfectly normal.
Meanwhile, many fans have welcomed the incident and called on Fifa to legalise biting on a trial basis.
Stephen Malley, from Peterborough, said: There is something dark and primal about it which I find utterly irresistible.
Give both teams 10 bites each. And it has to be below the waist.
