John Terry arrives for court case.

LONDON, ENGLAND, UNITED KINGDOM (JULY 9, 2012)(REUTERS) - 
England footballer John Terry called Anton Ferdinand a racist obscenity in response to taunts about his alleged affair

with a team-mate's ex-girlfriend, a court in London heard on Monday (July 9).

The 31-year-old Chelsea defender allegedly called Ferdinand, who plays for Queens Park Rangers, a "f****** black c***", the court was told.


Terry is accused of a racially aggravated public order offence during a Premier League match on October 23 last year, which was broadcast to millions of people.


Appearing at Westminster Magistrates' Court, Terry sat in the dock wearing a light grey suit, white shirt and pink tie.


Terry denies the charge.
