During a World Cup match between Italy and Uruguay Luis Suarez collided with Italian fullback Giorgio Chiellini, hitting his forehead against Chiellini's shoulder. Italy's Giorgio Chiellini claimed he was bitten by Uruguay's striker. FIFA has launched an inquiry into the incident: if it is established that Suarez really bit Chiellini, he could face disqualification for up to two years as this was not the first instance of the Uruguayan striker's inappropriate behavior. In fact, it was his third biting incident. However, it was by far not the third in sports. Biting incidents featuring Luis Suarez and other sportsmen in this photo gallery by ITAR-TASS.
