Adidas officials have said they "fully support FIFA’s decision" in banning Luis Suarez for biting an opponent during a World Cup match.

A spokesman said: "Adidas certainly does not condone Luis Suarez’s recent behaviour and we will again be reminding him of the high standards we expect from our players.
