Four-match ban for Terry

FORMER England and current Chelsea captain John Terry has been banned for four matches and fined A$345,250 after being found guilty of racially abusing QPR defender Anton Ferdinand by a Football Association independent regulatory commission.

Terry, who retired from international football this week, denied the charge, but the commission ruled that he was guilty of misconduct during Chelsea's EPL defeat at QPR in October last year.

The 31-year-old has 14 days from receiving the written reasons for the decision to lodge an appeal. The ban will not start until the appeals procedure is complete.

It means the central defender can play in today's game at Arsenal.
