Bonucci banned after dive

Juventus defender Leonardo Bonucci has been fined and banned by the Italian football federation following his dive at the weekend.

The Italy international was booked for simulation in the closing minutes of Sunday's 1-0 win over Palermo at the Stadio Renzo Barbera - his eighth yellow card of the season.

"I was supposed to shoot, but then I got different ideas clogged in my head," the 25-year-ol tweeted by way of apology after the match. "I deserved that yellow card and set a bad example. That'll teach me. As for the rest, it was a great victory."

In spite of his public contrition, Bonucci has been handed a one-match suspension by the FIGC's disciplinary panel, which also ruled he must pay a €fine.

Bonucci will now miss Wednesday's Coppa Italia tie at home to Cagliari.
