Bellamy appeared to catch the Dutchman with his arm as he ran past him during the second half of Swansea's 3-0 victory.

The incident was not seen by referee Andre Marriner and his fellow officials, and an FA statement read: "Cardiff City's Craig Bellamy has been charged by The FA for violent conduct following an incident which was not seen by the match officials but caught on video."

Bellamy has until 6pm on Tuesday to respond to the charge.
