Striker Luis Suarez, having been sent home by FIFA, received a hero’s welcome on his return to Uruguay.

 Despite attempts to keep his return under wraps there were 1,000 fans waving banners of support outside the terminal before he arrived. He was seen wearing a hooded top as he sped off to his mother’s home but refused to comment.

Jérôme Valcke, the FIFA general secretary, said the length of the ban reflected Suárez’s previous misdemeanours, and urged him to seek treatment.

“If it’s the first time, it’s an incident,” Valcke said. “If it is more than once, it is not an incident. That is why the ban was exemplary. He should find a way to stop doing it. He should go through treatment. ” 

Suárez, meanwhile, has lost his first major sponsorship deal after 888poker announced they are to “terminate their relationship with immediate effect”.

Adidas, who have a £1 million contract, are also reviewing their position and are poised to have talks with Suárez and his representatives after the World Cup.
