Luis Suarez’s Anfield biting controversy may have lost him a few outraged followers on Twitter but thanks to his latest mis-step the Uruguayan can now count one notorious celebrity gnasher among his tweeting hordes.
Former world heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson started following the Liverpool striker immediately after he appeared to sink his teeth into Branislav Ivanovic’s arm during the Reds’ 2-2 draw with Chelsea today.
Tyson also famously bit off more than he could chew when he took a chunk out of opponent Evander Holyfield’s ear in a 1997 WBA heavyweight title fight.
Iron Mike had his boxing licence revoked and had to cough up a $3million (£2m) as punishment for his vile deed and it appears the 46-year-old is now interested in the fall-out from the story that has the world of football shaking its head in dismay.
