Luis Suarez had been banned for four months by FIFA for biting Italy's Chiellini.


The Court of Arbitration for Sport has upheld Luis Suarez's four-month ban for biting an opponent at the World Cup, but cleared him to train with Barcelona.

CAS says FIFA's sanctions against Suarez are "generally proportionate to the offence committed."

Suarez cannot play for Barcelona until Oct. 26, and he remains banned for Uruguay's next eight competitive matches.
