John Terry entitled to retire - Theo Walcott

England forward Theo Walcott says he respects John Terry's decision to retire from international football.

Walcott admits it is a "sad" decision but hails the centre-half as "great professional"

The 31-year old is accused of "using abusive and/or insulting words and/or behaviour" towards Anton Ferdinand during Chelsea's game at QPR last season, Terry has already been cleared at a high-profile court case at Westminster Magistrates' Court but the FA decided to hold its own inquiry.

Theo Walcott was speaking as a representative of the Football Association's 'Just Play' scheme.
