Trial for Chelsea captain Terry begins today

Chelsea captain John Terry's trial begins this morning.

Terry will go on trial at 10:30am this morning accused of racially abusing fellow footballer Anton Ferdinand.

Terry, 31, was charged with a racially-aggravated public order offence after allegedly shouting an offensive comment at Ferdinand during a Premier League match on 23rd October last year.

The comment was allegedly made, and seemingly caught on footage, to the Queens Park Rangers defender when the two teams met at Loftus Road.

Terry's lawyer entered a not guilty plea on his behalf at London's Westminster Magistrates' Court in February.

He faces a maximum fine of £2,500 if convicted.
