Luis Suarez writes apology to Chiellini

Luis Suarez has apologised to Giorgio Chiellini and has vowed never to bite anyone again.

Suarez was sent home from the World Cup in shame after biting Chiellini during Uruguay's 1-0 win over Italy on June 24.

The Liverpool striker, who had bitten two opponents on the field of play before, was suspended from "all football-related activity" for four months by FIFA as a result.

Sweary Uruguay president slams FIFA 'fascists'

Uruguayan president Jose Mujica has called FIFA "a bunch of old sons of b*****s" in another attack on football's world governing body following Luis Suarez's lengthy ban for biting Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini.

The 79-year-old also described the Liverpool striker's four-month suspension from all football, plus nine international matches and a £65,000 fine, as a "fascist ban".

He may be pals with Pope Francis, but Jose Mujica is no friend of FIFA.

Colombia are through to the World Cup quarter-finals for the first time in their history thanks in no small part to James Rodriguez, whose inspired performance was lauded by coach Jose Pekerman and Uruguay counterpart Oscar Tabarez.

Rodriguez has been at the heart of Colombia's World Cup success.
