John Terry 'used racist obscenity in response to affair taunts'

Opening the prosecution, Duncan Penny said: "The crown alleges that the words he used demonstrated hostility based on Mr Ferdinand's membership or presumed membership of a racial group."

The court heard that Terry maintains he was only sarcastically repeating words that Ferdinand wrongly thought he had used.

Terry faces a maximum fine of £2,500 if convicted.
