Day 14,631

Oh dear. What a day for Luis Suárez.

During a 2–2 draw with Chelsea in a Premier League match at Anfield, Suárez bit Branislav Ivanović, the second time he has bitten an opponent.

The incident was not seen by the officials, and Suárez subsequently scored an equaliser in injury time.

The incident caused such an uproar that Prime Minister David Cameron called upon the FA to take a hard line with Suárez and as such, the FA charged him with violent conduct and he was fined an undisclosed sum by his club.

The original painting Luis Aged Three is unavailable, however, you can own a limited edition print here.
