Terry will consider shaking hands with fans if players refuse

John Terry made a dramatic flight to Africa last night in a bid to clear his name of racism.

Terry will appear before the CPS this week after an incident in October when Chelsea played QPR where tv cameras showed him mouthing something towards Anton Ferdinand.

In the FA Cup rematch between the two teams on saturday, the FA cancelled the planned handshake after rumours Anton Ferdinand would follow the example set by Wayne Bridge in 2010 and refused to shake the hand of the Chelsea skipper.

A club insider told the spoof "Obviously, John and his PR team were looking for a way to show him in a good light after the handshake cancellation. So a flight was booked to Africa and he is determined to gain entry to the stadiums of games involving Libya, Senegal, Sudan, Burkina Faso and possibly Ghana, Guinea, Gabon and Tunisia in the next three days before flying back to his court appearance on Wednesday. That's around 150 plus handshakes including subs and referees - what more does he need to do to prove his innocence?"

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
