Anton Ferdinand wife: Who is footballer Anton Ferdinand’s wife?

Nine years on, Ferdinand has expressed his regret about saying nothing.

In Anton Ferdinand: Football, Racism and Me, Ferdinand says: “I beat myself up about not speaking out.”

The synopsis for tonight’s documentary reads: “Former professional footballer Anton Ferdinand explores the issue of racial abuse in the game from a personal perspective.

“Following a sharp rise in reported incidents of racial abuse in football, Anton talks for the first time about his own highly publicised 2011 incident with the former England captain John Terry. Anton wants to understand his own story and find out what needs to be done to address the problem of racism in the game today.

“He also confronts the online abuse he has experienced since, which has affected his mental health, his career and the lives of his loved ones.”

Anton Ferdinand: Football, Racism and Me airs tonight at 9pm on BBC One
