Mohamed Jedidi (born September 10, 1978 in Grombalia) is a Tunisian footballer. As of 2004, he plays for Asswehly S.C.. He was a member of the Tunisian 2004 Olympic football team, which exited in the first round, finishing third in Group C, behind group and gold medal winners Argentina and runners-up Australia.

Tunisia rounded off their Olympic Games football campaign in bizarre fashion when they were forced to take the same penalty six times in their 3-2 win over Serbia and Montenegro. With the group C match level at 1-1 and in the dying stages, Tunisia were awarded the spot-kick for a foul in the box.

Up strode experienced striker Mohamed Jedidi to take the kick and he scored confidently in the corner. At least, he thought so. Referee Charles Ariiotima from Tahiti ordered the penalty to be taken again and again after Tunisian players were accused of encroachment as Jedidi twice more found the net successfully. Jedidi then had the fourth kick saved by Nikola Milojevic. Again Ariiotima was unhappy, claiming that it was the Serbian players who had drifted into the 18-yard area. The Europeans were accused of the same offence on the fifth kick, which again was stopped by Milojevic. Incredibly, the 25-year-old Jedidi kept his nerve to legally convert the sixth kick. The drama was all academic however as neither side managed to reach the quarter-finals.
