Published Add your comment

John Terry has been interviewed under caution about an alleged racist slur towards Anton Ferdinand, police sources have confirmed.

The Chelsea and England captain has denied making the alleged comments to the QPR defender during a Barclays Premier League match at Loftus Road last month. Scotland Yard said they were looking into the incident and that a 30-year-old man was interviewed under caution on Friday.

A force spokesman added: "Police were notified of an incident on Sunday 23 October involving alleged racial abuse. This is currently being assessed by officers from Hammersmith and Fulham."
