John Terry is likely to face racism charges over an on-pitch clash with another player, a newspaper report has said.
According to the Mirror, police believe that there is enough evidence to charge the England captain over his alleged racist rant. Police have questioned six senior Chelsea players about Terry's stand-off with Anton Ferdinand and are sending a report to crown prosecutors to make a final decision, the report has said.
Terry, 31, denies having made any racist remarks and claims that his words were taken out of context. Anton, 26, said he did not hear the alleged comment at the time but was alerted to it after the final whistle.
The Scotland Yard has also examined the video footage of the game. Prosecutors are due to consider if they have enough evidence to take the case to court, the Mirror has reported.
Many officers are of the opinion that the Chelsea defender should face the charges, the newspaper has claimed.
Meanwhile, another report has suggested that a professional goalkeeper hanged himself after his fiancée allegedly had an affair with Terry's brother Paul.
Dale Roberts, 24, was found dead at his £150,000 flat on Tuesday. He had been due to play for Rushden & Diamonds in an FA Cup Trophy replay against his old club Eastwood Town but did not turn up for the match.
According to the Sun, Dale had been left reeling in May when it was revealed Lindsey had an affair with his team-mate Paul.
