Chelsea captain John Terry has been charged by the Football Association after last season’s incident with QPR defender Anton Ferdinand.
Terry, 31, is alleged to have used “abusive and/or insulting words and/or behaviour” in the 23 October match.
The FA statement continues: “It is further alleged that this included a reference to the ethnic origin and/or colour and/or race of Ferdinand.”
Terry denies the charge and has requested a personal hearing.
Notice how they announce this news today of all days when the public and media outlets are focused on the start of the Olympics.
