Chelsea football captain John Terry will continue giving evidence today when he returns to his trial for allegedly racially abusing QPR defender Anton Ferdinand.
The former England skipper began giving evidence yesterday afternoon after his defence team lost their application to have the case dismissed.
Terry, 31, is accused of maliciously calling the Queens Park Rangers centre-half a “f****** black c***” during a Premier League match at Loftus Road on October 23 last year.
Terry will return to Westminster Magistrates’ Court today and resume his cross-examination by Duncan Penny, for the Crown.
Terry denies a racially aggravated public order offence and said he was “very angry and upset” when he thought the alleged victim accused him of racism.
The father-of-two will appear at court at 10am.
