Police question England and Chelsea captain John Terry

6:46 pm on 29 November 2011

Police have interviewed the Chelsea and England football captain John Terry over claims that he racially abused Queens Park Rangers defender Anton Ferdinand during a Premier League match in October.

Terry has strongly denied the claims which emerged after video footage circulated on the Internet, appearing to show the England star using racist language.

Terry claims the footage caught him asking Ferdinand if he mistakenly believed he'd racially abused him.

Terry says he regarded the incident closed after he'd spoken to Ferdinand in the dressing room following the game.
