The World Cup Awards

The Hunger Games Award: Luis Suarez (Uruguay)

BEFORE the tournament, we wondered if serial biter Luis Suarez preferred chilli or ketchup - as it turned out, he's into Italian after chomping on Giorgio Chiellini during Uruguay's match against the Azzuri. Now that he's got an extended summer vacation, thanks to the four-month ban he received from the incident, it's time to get the buck-toothed forward to Singapore to celebrate his adventurous culinary spirit here and put hawker fare like chicken rice, bak kut teh and laksa on the world stage. Forget the chilli crab cook-off with Gordon Ramsay and Fann Wong at Diner en Blanc, this new tourist marketing campaign will have the most bite.
