Paolo Di Canio has been suspended as a Sky Italia pundit, according to reports.
The former Sunderland manager has been stood down from his role for being on air while sporting a tattoo which refers to Italian dictator Benito Mussolini.
It prompted complaints and Di Canio has since been suspended.
Sky Italia executive Jacques Raynard was quoted by a number of national newspapers as saying: "After speaking at length to Di Canio, and despite his professionalism and his expertise regarding football, we have decided together to suspend the partnership."
Di Canio gave a straight-arm fascist salute to Lazio's fans during his playing career, while his appointment as Sunderland boss led to the protest resignation of board member David Milliband.
