Rome: Daniele De Rossi has been banned for three Serie A games after being found punching Mauro Icardi in the face during Saturday`s Roma home 0-0 draw with Inter Milan.

The Serie A`s disciplinary committee in a statement said Monday that the Roma player`s misconduct was detected by television instead of the referees, reports Xinhua.

"The television replays show that the Roma player aggressively pushed the opposition player`s head," the statement read.

"Then, in quick succession, he punched Icardi with the same hand from behind," it said.

Inter`s Juan Jesus has also been banned for three matches for punching the back of Roma player Alessio Romagnoli during the match.
