10:20 GMT, 12 November 2012
Luis Suarez used social media to offer his cringeworthy condolences to John Terry after the Chelsea captain was injured after a nasty-looking collision between the two players.
The Uruguayan sent a message saying 'Hugs to Terry, I hope it's nothing serious' to a combined 3million social media audience.
He tweeted the message to almost 1.2million followers on Twitter and sent the exact same message on Facebook to 2m more fans of his page.

The Liverpool striker looked to have done serious damage to the Chelsea defender when he accidentally fell awkwardly on his knee during yesterday's 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge.
But Sportsmail revealed today that Terry is confident he will not be out for a long period and the Chelsea medical staff believe the injury looked worse than it is.
The message was retweeted more than 2,000 times on Twitter and 20,000 people 'liked' it on Facebook with more than 1,500 gushing comments from fans all over the world.
He does not appear to be shy about showing his sensitive side on social media.
In the past month he has sent two soppy messages out to his fans.
Soppy: Suarez posted this soppy tweet to Terry, offering him 'hugs'
Hobbling: Terry had a brace on his leg and walked with crutched before leaving Stamford Bridge
In the mix again: Suarez later went on to equalise for Liverpool
One wished his wife Sofia a happy birthday, saying: 'Happy birthday my love!!!! Delfi and I love you so much!!!!'
And the other wished her a happy 10-year anniversary: 'Happy 10th anniversary!! 10 wonderful years together, thanks for being by my side. I love you!'
It is a different side to the 25-year-old who in a little under two years in England has been known for his nastier on-field actions.
He made a hand-gesture to Fulham fans in a defeat at Craven Cottage last season and was also banned for eight matches and fined 40,000 for being found guilty of racially abusing Patrice Evra.

FIVE MORE CRINGEWORTHY TWEETS
CARLTON COLE (@Carlton9Cole)
The West Ham striker (right) found himself wholly amusing when he began to make a series of 'jokes' about immigration during England's 1-1 friendly draw with Ghana last year.
He tweeted: 'Immigration has surrounded the Wembley premises! I knew it was trap! Hahahaha'.
Not content with that he added: 'The only way to get out safely is to wear an England jersey and paint your face w/ the St. George’s flag!'
And: 'Next friendly is gonna be Poland then Albania, government think their sly! I see it a mile away! Haha.'
It went on. He received a mass backlash from his followers, later deleted the tweets and was fined by the FA.
KEVIN PIETERSEN (@kevinpp24)
The England cricketer (below) showed how well he reacts to being dropped with a ranting tweet, seven hours before the official release of the team for the one-day and Twenty20 matches against Pakistan.
It read: 'Yep.. Done for rest of summer!! Man of the World Cup T20 and dropped from the T20 side too.. it’s a f**k up!!'
The tweet even contradicted the comments he'd given in the official announcement saying he understood the decision.
STEPHANIE RICE (@ItsStephRice)
The Australian Olympic swimmer sent a homophobic message to all her followers during Australia's win over South Africa during the Tri-Nations rugby in 2010.
She tweeted: 'Suck on that fa**ots. Probs the best game I’ve ever seen!! Well done boys.'
She issued a tearful apology in a press conference and said she wasn't homophobic – but lost her Jaguar sponsorship deal and car that came with it.
NATHAN ECCLESTON (@NathanEccleston)
Former Liverpool youth-team player, who is now a Blackpool striker, on the anniversary of the September 11th terrorists attacks adopted an unusual stance – blaming a media conspiracy.
He tweeted: 'I ain’t going to say attack don’t let the media make u believe that was a terrorist that did it. #OTIS.'
At least he was taking an interest in world affairs.
LOLO JONES (@lolojones)
American hurdler Lolo Jones tweeted during the Olympics to her 189,000 followers at the time that her team-mates would start performing better in the 'gun shooting' competition.
She tweeted: 'USA Men's Archery lost the gold medal to Italy but that's ok, we are Americans… When's da Gun shooting competition'
This was eight days after one of the worst massacres in US history at a midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises.
