Football Association chairman David Bernstein hopes a line can finally be drawn under the John Terry racism case after the Chelsea captain's decision not to appeal against his punishment.
Terry was suspended for four games and fined £220,000 by an independent Football Association regulatory commission after he was found guilty of racially abusing QPR defender Anton Ferdinand in a game last season.
A statement from Bernstein on the FA's website read: "The decision by John Terry not to appeal his FA charge hopefully brings to a close a difficult period for the domestic game in England in which, unfortunately, the reputation of English football has been damaged."
