Chelsea captain will be allowed to lift Champions League Trophy

6:10 am on 27 April 2012

Chelsea's football captain John Terry will be allowed to lift the Champions League trophy if his club beats Bayern Munich in next month's final, even though he will miss the game through suspension.

Terry was shown a straight red card for kneeing Alexis Sanchez in the back during Chelsea's 2-2 draw at Barcelona in the semi-final second leg which sent them through to the final.

But UEFA have decided Terry will be allowed to accept the trophy and collect a medal.
