Branislav Ivanovic is backing Chelsea captain John Terry in his race row investigation.

The Daily Mail says Terry has the backing of team-mate Branislav Ivanovic in the FA's race row investigation.

The Chelsea defender was on the spot when his captain clashed with Anton Ferdinand on Sunday, but has told friends he 'heard nothing racist'.

Terry insists he is innocent and has publicly pledged to clear his name on three separate occasions.

The evidence from Ivanovic comes as the FA continue their investigations into the unsavoury events at Loftus Road.

FA officials are expected back at QPR's training ground in Harlington, west London, on Friday where Ferdinand will deliver his key evidence about the incident.
