Affair scandal hits England captain John Terry

MOST COMMENTED

England captain John Terry lost his legal battle to keep allegations about his private life secret after a judge ruled that his claim for a gag order had more to do with protecting lucrative sponsorship deals than his family's privacy. As a result of the judge's decision, the English media are reporting on Terry's alleged affair with a former teammate's girlfriend.

The judge in the case did not identity any of the parties but it was reported that the woman at the center of the affair was the French model Vanessa Perroncel, the former long-term girlfriend of Wayne Bridge, who now plays for Manchester City.

Terry, 29, married childhood sweetheart Toni Poole in 2007 and is the father of twins. After the judge's ruling, British tabloids unleashed coverage of the scandal, led by The Sun, whose headlines included, "A Bridge too far for Terry."

The Independent's Robert Verkaik wrote that "the scandal is the latest of a spate of misadventures to befall Terry and raises serious questions about the future of his England captaincy at this summer's World Cup finals in South Africa." England opens its World Cup campaign against the USA June 12. Read the original story...
