Mexes banned for punch on Chiellini

AC Milan defender Philippe Mexes has been banned for three Serie A games for aggressive conduct towards Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini, the Lega Serie A has confirmed.

The France international punched Chiellini in the neck during Juve's 3-2 triumph over AC Milan in Turin on Sunday and, although the referee failed to see the action, TV evidence was used to determine the punishment.
