John Terry will be asked by Uefa to wear an anti-racism armband if he captains Chelsea against Shakhtar Donetsk on Tuesday, reports the Guardian

All club captains will be asked to wear a "Unite Against Racism" armband as part of a week of action by the European anti-discrimination body Fare.

Terry last week accepted a four-match ban for racially abusing QPR's Anton Ferdinand but the suspension applies only to domestic matches meaning he is eligible to play for Chelsea in the Champions League.

Uefa said in a statement: "Every team will be accompanied on to the pitch by children wearing Unite Against Racism T-shirts and the captains will be asked to wear a Unite Against Racism branded armband."
