Chelsea defender Gary Cahill has paid tribute to teammate John Terry for handling his court ordeal.

Chelsea defender Gary Cahill has paid tribute to teammate John Terry for handling his court ordeal.

Despite having a potentially career-ending conviction hanging over him, Terry helped his side to FA Cup and Champions League triumphs last season before being cleared of his racist abuse charge.

Cahill said: "John has gone through loads of stuff in his career, but the character he is, he just seems to steamroller over it and just motor on.

"So I don't think it will affect him in any way. Of course, everyone is happy with that (the verdict).

"The most important thing for us is that JT is playing in a Chelsea shirt, and I am sure that will be the case now so that is fantastic. When he comes back from holiday that will be behind him and put to bed."
