A footballer in France has been suspended for five years as he bit the penis of an opponent during a match.  The brutal incident occurred on November 17, 2019. 

The incident took place following a match between Terville and Soetrich in the east of France when a fight broke out in the stadium car park after the two sides drew 1-1.

The Tervile player tried to play the role of a peacemaker after two players started fighting, but the Soetrich player responded by biting him in a delicate area. 

The victim required ten stitches for his wound and was forced to take four days off from work.

The footballer has reportedly been suspended from the league, albeit for a shorter time of six months.
