John Terry has been interviewed under caution about an alleged racist slur towards Anton Ferdinand, police sources said.
Terry, the Chelsea and England captain, has denied making the alleged comments to the QPR defender during a Premier League match at Loftus Road last month.
A Scotland Yard spokesman said: "A 30-year-old man was interviewed under caution on Friday. Police were notified of an incident on Sunday 23 October involving alleged racial abuse. This is currently being assessed by officers from Hammersmith and Fulham.''
