Mr Justice Tugendhat decided he should lift a temporary gagging order he had granted which prevented the media from reporting that the £150,000-a-week footballer had conducted an extra-marital affair with the ex-girlfriend of his England team-mate Wayne Bridge.

The injunction – imposed last Friday after Terry heard rumours that a Sunday newspaper was intending to publish details of the affair – had been heavily criticised as the latest example of the courts bringing in a privacy law by the back door.
