Barcelona striker Luis Suarez accused of Filipe Luis on-field taunts

Barcelona striker Luis Suarez is being accused of taunting Atletico Madrid fullback Filipe Luis during Wednesday's 1-1 draw.

Images from the game have shown that the Barcelona striker, after fouling Filipe Luis and being booked for it, insulted the Atlético player.

"You dived, you clown" spat Luis Suárez. (Te has tirado, payaso in Spanish).

Evidence that Filipe Luis hadn't in fact dived came out straight after the game last night when Filipe Luis uploaded a photo of his injured, bleeding foot, caused by Suárez's tackle.

Suárez reacted angrily to the photo, saying "football is a man's game".
