John Terry's legal team might make a bad character application against Anton Ferdinand during his racism trial, a court has heard, reports BBC News.

The 31 year old Chelsea and England star will stand trial at Westminster Magistrates' Court on 9 July accused of a racially-aggravated public order offence.

Mr Terry's barrister, George Carter-Stephenson QC, has now said he is considering making the application.

Bad character applications are used to cast doubt on a witness's evidence.

The trial relates to a comment allegedly made and caught on camera to the Queens Park Rangers defender when the two teams played last October.
