FIFA has opened disciplinary proceedings against Uruguay striker Luis Suarez over his alleged bite during the World Cup Group D match against Italy, reports BBC Sport.

The Liverpool star was involved in an altercation with Azzurri defender Giorgio Chiellini during the match, and television replays appeared to show the forward biting his opponent on the shoulder.

Uruguay went on to win the match 1-0 to send the Italians out of the tournament, but the headlines on Wednesday have surrounded the incident.

Uruguay and Suarez have until 9pm BST/4pm ET on Wednesday to respond to the charge, as Sky Sports reported.

But what is the best course of action for FIFA over the incident?
