The Football Association has released on its website the written reasons behind the independent panel's decision to ban Chelsea captain John Terry for four games and fine him £220,000. It came after he used racist language towards QPR defender Anton Ferdinand.
The panel said it was quite satisfied that the offending words used by Terry "were said by way of insult".
The statement on the FA website contains strong language you may find offensive.
