a famous new follower on Twitter for Luis Suarez

On the scale of ‘you couldn’t make it up’ news, this must surely rank very high.
Luis Suarez’s bite on Chelsea opponent Branislav Ivanovic in the 2-2 draw with Liverpool on Sunday could land him in all kinds of trouble with the FA, but it has had an upside – a famous new follower on Twitter.
Former heavyweight boxer Mike Tyson made Suarez his 432nd and most recent follow as the Uruguayan’s antics became the talk of the social network.
And in doing so, Suarez has now been followed by perhaps the only sportsman in history more famous than him for biting an opponent.
In the second round of his 1997 heavyweight title fight with Evander Holyfield, Tyson took a piece out of Holyfield’s ear with his teeth. He was disqualified from the bout, and fined $3m (around £2m) plus legal costs after the incident.
