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 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.
