Fabio Capello quits as England manager


Fabio Capello has resigned as England manager, the Football Association has confirmed.

Capello quit following a meeting with FA chairman David Bernstein and general secretary Alex Horne - their first since the FA's decision to strip John Terry of the England captaincy, pending the outcome of his court case in July. Terry, 31, denies a charge of allegedly racially abusing QPR's Anton Ferdinand.

On Sunday, Capello told Italy's state broadcaster RAI he did not believe someone should be punished by sporting authorities before a court had reached a verdict.

David Bond reports.
