Police question England captain Terry

29 November 2011, 09:28

London - British police have quizzed Chelsea and England football captain John Terry over claims that he racially abused QPR defender Anton Ferdinand, British media reported Monday.

A Metropolitan police spokesman confirmed that a 30-year-old man, named as Terry by BBC and Sky News sources, had been interviewed under caution on Friday.

"Police were notified of an incident on Sunday 23 October involving alleged racial abuse," added the spokesperson.

"This is currently being assessed by officers from Hammersmith and Fulham."

Terry has strongly denied hurling a racist slur at Ferdinand during the stormy west London derby at Loftus Road on October 23.

The claims against Terry emerged after video footage circulated on the Internet appearing to show the England star using racist language.

Terry denied abusing Ferdinand, claiming that footage had caught him asking Ferdinand if he mistakenly believed he had racially abused him.

"I thought Anton was accusing me of using a racist slur against him. I responded aggressively that I never used that," Terry said.

Terry had also insisted he regarded the incident closed after he had spoken to Ferdinand in the dressing room following the game.
