Friday's Independent (UK) front page describes John Terry as 'racist'

The Chelsea captain received a four-match ban from the FA earlier today.

AFTER JOHN TERRY was today found guilty of racial abuse and handed a four-match ban, the Independent (UK) have decided to lead with what will no doubt be considered a controversial headline for Friday’s front page.

The headline in question reads ‘J.T. CAPTAIN. LEADER. LEGEND. RACIST’

Despite the FA’s decision earlier today, the issue is likely to remain an ongoing one, with representatives for Terry suggesting he is considering appealing the ban.
