England defender John Terry will continue giving evidence today when he returns to his trial for allegedly racially abusing Anton Ferdinand.

The Chelsea captain began giving evidence on Tuesday afternoon after his defence team lost their application to have the case dismissed. Terry, 31, is accused of maliciously calling the Queens Park Rangers centre-half a "f****** black c***" during a Premier League match at Loftus Road on October 23 last year.

Terry will return to Westminster Magistrates' Court today and resume his cross-examination by Duncan Penny, for the Crown. Terry, who used to play at the heart of England's defence with Ferdinand's brother Rio, denies a racially aggravated public order offence.
