SUAREZ DENIES BITING ITALY PLAYER
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, it would have been hard to avoid the news that Uruguay striker Luis Suarez bit Italy’s Giorio Chiellini during a game. FIFA’s disciplinary panel decided to ban him from nine international games and give him a four-month suspension.
In a remarkable excuse for his behavior, this morning’s reports suggest he is appealing the decision, as it was an accident. “I hit my face against the player leaving a small bruise on my cheek and a strong pain in my teeth,” Suarez wrote in a letter to FIFA.

She was going for her sixth title and, as the top seed, it looked achievable, but Serena Williams was knocked out of the tournament this weekend.

SHIA LABEOUF ARRESTED IN NEW YORK
Transformers star Shia LaBeouf was arrested on Thursday evening during a performance of Cabaret in Studio 54 theatre in New York.
Audience members say that he was disruptive during the first act of the musical, and became aggravated when security asked him to leave. An NYPD spokesperson confirmed that the 28-year-old was arrested, saying: “He was being rather difficult and combative, verbally… to the point where security guards asked him to please leave the premises and he refused. Police were called and he was detained and arrested.”
Shia was charged with criminal trespass and disorderly conduct. Tweets suggest that he was crying when led away by officers, sparking further concern about his erratic behaviour over the last year.
