Photo op and fury at Suarez ‘bite’ billboard

It was another party in Copacabana, the bars packed, the samba turned up — and, in the middle of it all, hundreds of World Cup fans lining up to be bitten by Luis Suarez.

Here are some of the photos. Kindly pick your favourite and if you can make one, we will be glad to publish it.
