Chelsea and England defender John Terry has arrived at court to stand trial for allegedly racially abusing QPR's Anton Ferdinand.

The case relates to a comment allegedly made to the Queens Park Rangers defender Anton Ferdinand when the teams played last October.

The 31-year-old is charged with a racially aggravated public order offence, for which the maximum sentence is a £2,500 fine.
