Chelsea captain John Terry was charged by the Football Association yesterday for abusing Queens Park Rangers defender Anton Ferdinand despite his acquittal at a criminal trial earlier this month.

The former England captain was cleared of racially abusing Ferdinand at a London court hearing on July 13.

However the FA said in a statement they had now charged Terry after reviewing evidence gathered in their own inquiry in addition to the criminal investigation.
