Luis Suarez might have had a sleepless night after facing the furore over his shocking bite of Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic, but he does have some good news – he's gained a new follower on Twitter.
His new subscriber is none other than Mike Tyson, who surely would have felt sympathy for the Liverpool striker, having sparked a biting storm of his own after the former heavyweight champion bit Evander Holyfield on the ear in 1997.

Suarez sank his teeth into Ivanovic's arm midway through the second half of the 2-2 draw, before going on to score in the dying seconds to steal Liverpool a point.
Liverpool have confirmed the striker will face a club sanction while the Uruguayan faces a wait to hear of any disciplinary action from the FA.
Tyson knows all about the fall-out of
biting an opponent, being disqualified from the world title fight and
fined 2 million after taking a chunk out of Holyfield's ear.
Perhaps he could Tweet Suarez a few tips on how to stop all the cannibal jokes…
