John Terry and Anton Ferdinand met at Wembley as the Chelsea captain’s Football Association disciplinary hearing over allegations he racially abused the QPR defender started on Monday.
Ferdinand gave evidence to the independent panel at the hearing, with Terry in attendance to hear the case against him.
Terry, who dramatically announced his retirement from international football, accused the FA of forcing his hand after the governing body pressed on with racial charges. The case could last most of the week.
