Chelsea's Terry thanks all involved for helping with positive verdict

John Terry was today acquitted of a racially aggravated public order offence and has thanked his support team for all their hard work.

The Chelsea captain has been found not guilty of racially abusing QPR's Anton Ferdinand during a match in October with Westminster Magistrates' Court handing down the positive verdict.

In the wake of the four-day case, Terry's legal representative Dan Morrison released a statement showing the former England skipper's gratitude for everyone involved on his side.

"The court has today acquitted John Terry of all charges," read the statement.

"He has consistently explained his position to the FA, to the police and to the court. He did not racially abuse Mr. Ferdinand and the court has accepted this.

"John would like to thank his legal team for their hard work and his family, friends and Chelsea Football Club for their support."
