If you've ben following the World Cup at all, it's safe to assume you've heard the name Luis Suárez.
If you haven't, he's a soccer player for Uruguay and he bit a fellow player, Italy's Giorgio Chiellini.
Even though Suárez originally didn't cop to the whole biting incident, he was due to be punished by FIFA. Then, FIFA laid the smack down: Suárez was banned for 4 months and suspended for 9 games after that!!
Finally, feeling the repercussions of his actions, Suárez apologized to Chiellini!
Now, in the most honorable sportsman move of the century, Chiellini has accepted his apology, Tweeting:
.@luis16suarez It's all forgotten. I hope FIFA will reduce your suspension.

Wow. Seriously, that is so amazing.
That's what sportsman like conduct is all about.
Way to be the bigger man, Chiellini!
