SAMBA BEATS

Bite bet & a fortune

lRecife: Luis Suarez bite may have enraged the Italians, but a handful of gamblers in Scandinavia were celebrating as their unlikely bet came up trumps, having placed bets at odds of 175/1 that the Uruguayan would sink his teeth into an opponent during the World Cup. One winner, Jonathan Braeck, from Sweden, bet 80 Swedish crowns ($12.04) and is now set for a payout of 14,000 crowns.

Andy stance

London: Wimbledon champion and avid football fan Andy Murray weighed into the Luis Suarez’s World Cup biting storm on Wednesday and condemned the Uruguayan as “weird” and ”not quite right”. “I don’t think you look at that as a football fan. It’s just wrong,” said Murray.

Just eat it

Natal: It was inevitable: Evander Holyfield has weighed in on Luis Suarez’s bite. Suarez’s act on Tuesday may be the most famous sports bite since Mike Tyson chomped on Holyfield’s ear during their 1997 title fight. Holyfield, who has since made up with Tyson, tweeted Tuesday: “I guess any part of the body is up for eating.”
