05:21 PM ET 04.24 | Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has finally been handed down his punishment for grabbing the arm of Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic and biting in to it over the weekend. The Independent Regulatory Commission announced that Suarez would be given a 10-game English Premier League ban. The punishment is effective immediately, which means Suarez will miss the remainder of the EPL season. The ban will also spill in to next season as he misses the first six games of the 2013-14 English Premier League season.

He's lucky it wasn't for more.

Additionally, he'll be required to take rabies shots prior to returning to the pitch. :P
