Terry considers legal action

Published Add your comment

John Terry is considering taking legal action after an image resembling the Chelsea and England captain appeared on cigarette packets in India.

A blurred image of a person looking extremely like Terry has appeared on the packets above a "smoking kills" warning. A spokesman for Elite Management, which represents Terry, said no permission had been given for the use of the defender's image in promotion of an anti-smoking drive in India.

Their statement read: "It's been brought to our attention that an image of our client (Terry) has been used on some cigarette packaging without our consent or knowledge. We've now instructed our legal team to investigate this matter."
