Former England football captain John Terry appeared in court on Monday charged with racially abusing Queens Park Rangers defender Anton Ferdinand during a Premier League match in October.
Ferdinand, brother of Manchester United defender Rio, told Westminster Magistrates Court that he had not realised at the time that any racist insult had been directed at him by the Chelsea player.
The high-profile case, focusing on foul language from both players, triggered the resignation in February of England's Italian manager Fabio Capello after the FA decided to strip Terry of the captain's armband for Euro 2012.
