Video: Uruguay fans react to Luis Suarez bite: 'It's complicated'

The view from the Uruguay supporters

While Luis Suarez's alleged bite on Giorgio Chiellini during Uruguay's 1-0 World Cup victory over Italy has made headlines all around the world for its vulgarity, it seems Uruguay fans do not view the incident with the same shock or disdain.

"No, no we don't do that!" one supporter said when asked if the incident was a bite.

"It's complicated, it's very complicated," another answered. "The problem is that he [Suarez] will have to go to the dentist now."

UPDATE: Luis Suarez banned for nine matches

In fact, only one Uruguay fan suggested that the Liverpool striker should face punishment. "He's gone too far," the fan conceded.
