John Terry will not lose the Chelsea captaincy, chairman Bruce Buck confirmed on Saturday.

The former England captain was suspended for four matches and fined £220,000 by the Football Association earlier this month for racially abusing QPR defender Anton Ferdinand. Terry decided this week not to appeal the decision, leaving Chelsea to decide what action of their own to take.

Buck said on talkSPORT: "John will continue to be captain of the club. We have taken disciplinary action and we think it is firm disciplinary action and appropriate for the circumstances."
