Luis Suarez has been handed a worldwide ban by FIFA.
A worldwide ban of four months, which will affect Liverpool - and a 9 game international ban.
He would be unable to play for Liverpool until the 27th October, missing a potential 9 Premier League games, 3 Champions League games and Liverpool's 3rd Round League Cup fixture.
Suarez has also been fined around £65,000.
Uruguay have three days to appeal against the decision.
A FIFA statement read:
"Such behaviour cannot be tolerated on any football pitch and, in particular, not at a Fifa World Cup when the eyes of millions of people are on the stars on the field" - Claudio Sulser, chairman of the Fifa disciplinary committee.
Under the terms of the ban Suarez cannot enter the confines of any stadium - but he could still be transferred to another football club. He is not even allowed to train with his club.
LFC issued the following statement:
"Liverpool Football Club will wait until we have seen and had time to review the Fifa Disciplinary Committee report before making any further comment."
