Published Add your comment

John Terry has sensationally quit England less than 24 hours before the Football Association hearing into the Anton Ferdinand saga was expected to begin.

Chelsea captain Terry announced his immediate retirement from international football, accusing the FA of making his position "untenable".

The 31-year-old said in a statement: "I am today announcing my retirement from international football. I would like to thank the England managers who have selected me for my 78 caps. I have had great pleasure in sharing that honour with all the players that I've played with."
