Chelsea skipper Terry has made FA appeal decision

Chelsea skipper John Terry has made his decision over whether to appeal against an independent regulatory commission's verdict that he was guilty of racially abusing Anton Ferdinand.

But the Guardian say he will wait until after England's World Cup qualifier in Poland next week to announce his intention.

The Chelsea captain, who had been acquitted of a racially aggravated public order offence at Westminster magistrates court in July, was handed a four-match ban and a fine of £220,000 by the three-man panel, who described aspects of Terry's defence as "improbable, implausible and contrived" before concluding there was "no credible basis" for that defence.
