Ashley Cole has been charged with misconduct by the English Football Association following his foul-mouthed outburst on Twitter.

The Chelsea and England defender called the FA a "bunch of twats" after the governing body's independent regulatory commission investigating the John Terry racial abuse case cast doubt on his evidence.

A statement on the FA's website said: "Chelsea FC's Ashley Cole has been charged by The FA in relation to a Twitter comment which was improper and/or brought the game into disrepute."

Cole has until 4pm on Thursday, 11 October to respond to the charge.
