The Guardian has revealed the identity of the player who obtained a gagging order in a bid to prevent a Sunday tabloid from printing allegations about his private life. It’s John Terry , England’s upstanding captain.

“Lawyers for Terry succeeded in applying for a high court injunction on Friday last week, having learnt that a Sunday newspaper – believed to be the News of the World – planned to write about his private life.

“Under the terms of a superinjunction agreed by a high court judge on privacy grounds, newspaper groups were unable to reveal who had applied to stop the story coming out. But today the judge, Mr Justice Tugendhat, lifted the injunction altogether.” [ The Guardian ]
