888poker "reviewing" partnership with Luis Suarez following 'bite'

Gambling website 888poker.com reveal that they are "reviewing" their relationship with Luis Suarez after he allegedly bit Italy's Giorgio Chiellini at the World Cup.

Liverpool striker Luis Suarez is in danger of losing one of his sponsors after gambling website 888poker.com announced that they are reviewing their relationship with the Uruguayan.

The 27-year-old is under investigation by FIFA after he appeared to bite the shoulder of Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini during Uruguay's 1-0 win at the World Cup in Brazil on Tuesday.

It has now emerged that the online poker company are considering their partnership with Suarez, who was named as a brand ambassador a month ago.

A tweet on 888poker's official page stated that they will not "tolerate unsporting behaviour" should the allegations be proved true.


The company signed up Suarez having already been aware of previous racism and biting offences committed by the prolific forward.
