Italy's Giorgio Chiellini shows teeth marks on his shoulder where he was bitten by Uruguay's Luis Suarez, during their 2014 World Cup match at the Dunas arena in Natal in this June 24, 2014 file photo.
I was covering Italy v. Uruguay and it felt almost just like any other match. But in the second half, there was some strange contact between Italy's Giorgio Chiellini and Uruguay's Luis Suarez. I was following the action elsewhere on the pitch, but I saw them both fall down. They both looked like they were in pain, and I started to take pictures until Chiellini reacted angrily right in front of me, pulling down his shirt to reveal his shoulder.
I shot some photos and, for me, the story was finished.
But I only did part of the work. The second, very important part of the job was done by our great editors who spotted the teeth marks on Chiellini's shoulder, and a cropped version of my picture was sent out to our clients so they could see too. - Tony Gentile REUTERS/Tony Gentile (BRAZIL - Tags: SOCCER SPORT WORLD CUP TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY)
