Terry: 'I'm not racist'

POLICE have passed a file on John Terry's alleged racial slur towards Anton Ferdinand to prosecutors.

The 30-year-old Chelsea and England captain has strongly denied making the alleged comments to the QPR defender during a Premier League match at Loftus Road on October 23.

The Crown Prosecution Service confirmed yesterday that it had received a file about the case from police and was considering whether there was enough evidence to bring charges.

Shortly after the allegations were made, Terry issued a statement saying: "I've seen that there's a lot of comments on the internet with regards to some video footage of me during the game.

"I'm disappointed that people have leapt to the wrong conclusions about the context of what I was seen to be saying to Anton Ferdinand.

"I would never say such a thing, and I'm saddened that people would think so."
