Luis Suarez lies on the floor after he is accused of biting Giorgio Chiellini

Twitter has gone into meltdown with the news announced by Fifa that Luis Suarez has been banned for a record-nine international matches plus all football activity for four months for biting Giorgio Chiellini.

Yesterday there was two million mentions of the name Luis Suarez on the social networking platform, and that total stands to be well beaten today.

Here are some of the best Tweets about the controversial striker as the extent of his ban was revealed.

The next time we see Suarez on a football field will be on 1 November, when Liverpool take on Newcastle at St James' Park in the Premier League.
