Chelsea defender John terry is accused of blurting out racist obscenities, allegedly a “f****** black c***”, to the Queens Park Rangers defender Anton Ferdinand as a response to taunts regarding his suspected affair with a team mate’s ex-girlfriend.

The trial for the exchange of insults, that took place as the two teams met at Loftus Road, was scheduled at Westminster Magistrates’ Court today and Terry turned up wearing a light grey suit, white shirt and pink tie.

The court alleged that Terry told Ferdinand to “f*** off” and also called him a “f****** ****head”. The court also proclaimed that based on lip-reading evidence, Ferdinand retorted to Terry saying “Oh you s******* ya mates missus” with gestures made with fist.

Before the hearing Anton received a message from his brother Rio Ferdinand, the Manchester United defender. Rio wrote on Twitter, “Morning all! Frazzled head this morning, school run done! anton_ferdinand head high bruv.”

Duncan Penny opened the prosecution today saying, “The Crown alleges that the words he used demonstrated hostility based on Mr Ferdinand’s membership or presumed membership of a racial group.”

He continued, “The Crown alleges that the defendant, most probably in response to physical gestures being made by Mr Ferdinand which the defendant understood to refer to the well-publicised allegation of an extra-marital affair with a team-mate’s wife, shouted at Mr Ferdinand.”

He called the words “abusive and insulting in a straightforward sense” and asserted, “They were uttered by the defendant in response to goading by Mr Ferdinand on the issue of his extra-marital affair, rather than by way of exaggerated and instant querying of a perceived false allegation.”
