Cagliari have been fined 25,000 euros (£22,000) over the racist chanting directed at Inter Milan striker Samuel Eto'o during Sunday's Serie A clash.

The match was temporarily stopped after only three minutes because of the level of abuse aimed at Eto'o.

The referee spoke to both captains while a stadium announcer warned fans that the game could be abandoned if the chanting continued.

The Cameroon striker went on to score the only goal in Inter's 1-0 victory.

Former Barcelona star Eto'o no longer takes his family to watch him play in Italy because of the racist chanting.

Meanwhile, AS Roma were fined 10,000 euros (£8,800) after a fan shone a laser into the eyes of an assistant referee during Saturday's 2-1 win over Genoa.
