The Uruguay and Liverpool striker was on Thursday banned for nine international games and from all football for four months after being found guilty of biting for the third time.

A statement on 888poker.com on Friday morning read: "888poker signed Luis Suarez following a fantastic season for which his achievements were widely recognised.

"Regrettably, following his actions during Uruguay's World Cup match against Italy on Tuesday, 888poker has decided to terminate its relationship with Luis Suarez with immediate effect."
