Former England captain John Terry
Former England captain John Terry has retired from international football just hours before a Football Association hearing into claims he racially abused an opponent was due to begin, reports SkySports.
The 31-year-old Chelsea defender said that the FA had made his position "untenable".
Terry was capped 78 times in an international career stretching back to 2003.
He is still expected to continue playing for his club, Chelsea were he is the captain.
