Terry’s side fell to their second Premier League loss of the season at Loftus Road
The Metropolitan Police have launched a formal investigation into allegations that Chelsea captain John Terry racially abused QPR’s Anton Ferdinand.
Terry, 30, has categorically denied aiming a racist slur at defender Ferdinand during Chelsea’s 1-0 loss at Loftus Road on 23 October.
The Police spent a week “assessing” a complaint from a member of the public before launching their investigation.
The Football Association are also looking into the incident.
Some viewers claimed video replays from the match at Loftus Road showed Terry using racist language, while the Football Association said it had received a complaint.
A Metropolitan Police statement said: “Police were notified of an incident on Sunday October 23 involving alleged racial abuse. This is currently being investigated by officers from Hammersmith and Fulham.”
