Luis Suarez has been banned for eight matches and fined £40,000 by the Football Association for racially abusing Patrice Evra.

The Liverpool striker, who has the right of appeal, was sanctioned by an FA Independent Regulatory Commission.

Evra told French TV he was racially abused by the Uruguayan on 10 occasions during Manchester United's Barclays Premier League match at Anfield on October 15.
