Published Add your comment

England footballer John Terry has denied he had "snapped" and used a racist obscenity after being taunted by another player.

Terry, 31, is accused of calling Anton Ferdinand a "f****** black c***" during a Premier League match on October 23 last year.

At Westminster Magistrates' Court, prosecutor Duncan Penny said he had "snapped" over Ferdinand's taunts about his alleged affair with former team mate Wayne Bridge's ex-girlfriend.
