London - Wimbledon champion and avid football fan Andy Murray weighed into the Luis Suarez World Cup biting storm on Wednesday and condemned the Uruguayan as "weird" and "not quite right".

Murray said Suarez, who could be kicked out of the World Cup for sinking his teeth into the shoulder of Italian defender Giorgio Chiellini during Uruguay's 1-0 victory on Tuesday, had gone too far.

"I don't think you look at that as a football fan. It's just wrong.

"It looks really weird seeing a person bite someone else. I just don't see how that would come into your thinking," said Murray.

"He's not thinking clearly at the time.

"There was obviously something not quite right there.

"You can understand sometimes someone lashing out or whatever.

"But the biting's far too much."
