Does this angle definitively prove that Luis Suarez bit his opponent?

The player himself, along with other members of the Uruguayan camp, have denied the accusations.

AS MANY RUSHED to condemn Uruguay’s Luis Suarez after he allegedly bit Italy’s Giorgio Chiellini, others urged caution.

After all, the immediate TV replays were not entirely clear. Moreover, some members of the Uruguay camp vehemently denied the accusations, including Suarez himself and captain Diego Lugano, who snapped: “You need to show me [the incident] because I didn’t see anything.”

Yet the latest footage, as seen below, appears a little more conclusive than the initial pictures.
