London:

Controversial Uruguayan striker Luis Suarez and his wife Sofia Balbi were mobbed by Barcelona fans during a walk around the Spanish city.

The 27-year-old looked a little uncomfortable when he was grabbed by one female supporter as he was trying to make a quick getaway on Saturday, according to Daily Mail.

The former Liverpool forward, though, did stop to sign a fan's Lionel Messi shirt.

Suarez, who received a four-month ban from all football activity following his putting the bite on Italy's Giorgio Chiellini during Uruguay's final World Cup group game in Brazil, was bought by Barcelona from Liverpool in a 75 million-pound deal.

Suarez cannot be officially unveiled by the Catalan club under the terms of his ban.
