Sir Bobby Charlton has called on John Terry to ensure England's European Championship campaign is not derailed by him losing the captaincy for a second time.

World Cup-winning Manchester United legend Charlton backed the Football Association's decision to strip Terry of the armband while the defender awaits trial over allegations he racially abused QPR's Anton Ferdinand, something he denies.

Charlton, speaking in his role as a Laureus World Sports Awards academy member, said: "At the end of the day, if John Terry has been found to have potentially made some mistakes and has been pilloried all through the media then they (the Football Association) have to act. The one person who can solve this is John Terry himself."
