Hot engine start problem

Hello, I own a Fiat Punto MK2 188 Sporting 1.2 16v 2001 81hp. I bought the car in 2006 and I still have a problem with it even to this day. When I hop in the car and the engine is cold, the car starts well, but if I travel for a bit and I stop the engine when it's hot, the engine doesn't start. Now, the engine cranks slowly and the dashboard lights seem to fade off when this happens. I changed the starter and, the cables that are connected to the battery are in good condition! A few weeks ago I was at a gas station and after i pumped gas i couldn't start the car, i had to push it. Also when it starts after a push the engine works well!! Can this be a ECU problem? I don't know if it's the battery because the car starts when the engine is cold, what difference would it be if it was hot? The alternator is new. Other important engine parts are in good condition!!
Thanks! Looking for a tip
