Philippe Mexes given four-game ban

AC Milan defender Philippe Mexes has been suspended for four games after a disciplinary panel ruled he punched Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini.

Mexes, 31, was sent off during Sunday's game, which Juventus won 3-2 in Turin, after receiving two yellow cards, which resulted in a one-match ban.

However, after television evidence was reviewed, it was established that he had also hit Italy international Chiellini during the game and has been suspended for a further three games.

He will now miss the matches against Udinese -- for which the San Siro will be closed as a result of chants during the Juve game -- Parma, Lazio and Fiorentina.
