Luis Suarez Charged By FA Over Alleged Racial Abuse

Just in case anyone had forgotten about the Luis Suarez/Patrice Evra racism situation what with all the fuss about John Terry and Anton Ferdinand (not to mention Sepp Blatter's drunken-elephant-like blundering into the whole affair), the FA are here to remind us all that it happened, and that they're looking into it:

The FA has today charged Liverpool’s Luis Suarez following an incident that occurred during the Liverpool versus Manchester United fixture at Anfield on 15 October 2011.

It is alleged that Suarez used abusive and/or insulting words and/or behaviour towards Manchester United’s Patrice Evra contrary to FA rules. 

It is further alleged that this included a reference to the ethnic origin and/or colour and/or race of Patrice Evra.

The FA will issue no further comment at this time.

It's important to remember that there's still a huge element of uncertainty in this case - the FA's language makes it clear that Suarez has not been found guilty (or innocent) as of right now. The investigation is still ongoing and nobody (except Suarez, obviously) can be sure what actually happened between the Liverpool striker and Evra.
