Footage of Luis Suarez cheating on his Italian citizenship test has been leaked online.

In September, Suarez took the test as he looked to become an Italian citizen prior to a mooted move to Juventus.

Suarez, whose wife Sofia Balbi is of Italian descent, passed the exam at the University of Perugia and the former Liverpool and Barcelona striker obtaining a Italian passport mean he wouldn't be a non-EU player.

But there was huge controversy after reports emerged stating that there were "irregularities" with the test - leading to a police investigation that found it was indeed the case.

It was claimed that Suarez knew about some of the questions in advance, but three CCTV clips of Suarez sat doing the exam show that he received a helping hand.

At one point it appears as though Suarez is handed a piece of paper with what would one would assume are answers, while a number of university employees later ask him for pictures and autographs.

In December, the university's director Simone Olivieri, along with three professors, were hit with eight-month suspensions as a result of their conduct.

They were found guilty of "coming to predetermine the outcome and the score of the exam, to correspond to the requests that they had been put forward by Juventus, with the aim of achieving a positive return of image, both personal and for the university."

Juventus chairman Andrea Agnelli claims he only found out about the test when he read newspapers.

As quoted by Diario AS, Agnelli said: "I don't remember being informed about the exam, I found out through the newspapers and I remember calling Suárez just to thank him for his proposal."

Suarez's transfer to Juve never happened and he remained in Spain with Atletico Madrid, where he's scored 21 times in 36 appearances in all competitions this term.
