Chelsea skipper John Terry has been hit with a three-match UEFA ban for his dismissal in the Champions League semifinal against Barcelona.

Terry sat out Chelsea's victory over Bayern Munich in the final to serve a mandatory one-match ban.

But UEFA's disciplinary panel has added two more matches, after ruling that Terry was guilty of violent conduct when he struck his knee into the back of Barcelona forward Alexis Sanchez during the second leg of the semi-final at the Nou Camp.

The centre-back is now ineligible for the Super Cup match against Europa League winners Atletico Madrid in August as well Chelsea's first Champions League group-stage match in September.
