Luis Suarez has been suspended from football for four months after being cited for biting Giorgio Chiellini in the World Cup.
Here's how the Twittosphere reacted.
Suarez stat of the day. Luis has now been banned for 34 games since 2010 without receiving a single red card.

A gentle nibble for Suarez - he'll be back playing again by end of October. And can pay the fine from 4 days wages. — Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) June 26, 2014
I'm surprised FIFA has acted so swiftly on Luis Suarez. Usually getting any action out of them is like pulling teeth.

Following the news that Luis Suarez can't play football for four months, Stoke City have launched a bid to sign him. #BrazilNuts — Paddy Power (@paddypower) June 26, 2014
#Suarez can play #uru friendly matches. Only competitive matches count towards nine-match suspension.

As an aside, you'd imagine the Suarez news has made it a damn sight harder for #SAFC to sign Fabio Borini. — Scott Wilson (@Scottwilsonecho) June 26, 2014
Playing devil's advocate but, for club, could be argued that persisting with a player with his history involves a certain amount of risk.

Love notion of being banned "from all football-related activity". Does buying Panini stickers count? Let's hope he's finished his album... — Scott Wilson (@Scottwilsonecho) June 26, 2014
What if...Rickie Lambert saw this coming? What if Rickie Lambert is a time traveller?

Nicklas Bendtner showing boxers = £80,000 fine. Luis Suarez biting an opponent = £65,00 fine. #FIFALogic

Well done, FIFA. Strong stance. Powerful message with heavy punishment for Suarez. After all, third time he's done it. #worldcup

I think Suarez has biting off more then he can chew this time.
Great to see FIFA act & give him a 4 month ban

Suárez should've broken his leg, would've given him a three-match ban :)

Say Suarez is raging with 'any football related activity' ban. I would be annoyed to if I couldn't play a game of FIFA for four months
