The pre-match handshake ahead of the QPR v Chelsea game tomorrow will go ahead as planned, the Premier League have said.

He added of the handshake: "We'll go ahead with it, yes."

QPR striker Bobby Zamora said he will shake John Terry's hand at Loftus Road tomorrow, if the Chelsea captain starts.
The pair played together as schoolboys and Zamora told The Sun: "I've known John Terry for years and he's a very good friend of mine. We grew up together and of course I'll shake his hand if he's playing on Saturday."
Both QPR and Chelsea have published statements on their club websites warning fans over their conduct during the match at Loftus Road tomorrow.
Tensions are expected to be high with Anton Ferdinand and John Terry lining up against one another for the first time since the Chelsea captain was found not guilty of using a racial slur against the QPR defender.
The statements said:
John Terry looks set to line up against Anton Ferdinand tomorrow for the first time since the Chelsea captain was found not guilty of using a racial slur against the QPR defender.
Terry remains subject of a Football Association investigation over the charges, which he denies, while left-back Ashley Cole was a character witness during the trial.
Speculation is rife whether Ferdinand and Terry will shake hands before the kickoff at Loftus Road.
The tradition was abandoned in advance of the previous two encounters between the clubs but the Premier League has no intention of cancelling the pre-match handshakes this time.
John Terry has denied the FA's racism charge and has requested a personal hearing, according to Sky Sports.
