John Terry, right, will appear for the third day of the hearing on Wednesday

John Terry's hearing is expected to go into a third day as the Chelsea skipper contests a charge of using racist language.

Terry is facing an FA independent regulatory hearing into a charge that he used a racist slur towards QPR's Anton Ferdinand in October last year.

The 31-year-old was accompanied by Chelsea chairman Bruce Buck at the hearing at Wembley Stadium on Tuesday morning, and the defender departed shortly after 1pm.

He is expected to return on Wednesday to hear evidence in his favour - with team-mate Ashley Cole possibly called upon again to testify.

Cole gave evidence that helped exonerate Terry in his Westminster Magistrates Court case in July related to the same incident. Cole told the court: "We shouldn't be sitting here."
