Rio Ferdinand is awaiting the verdict of his FA hearing in response to a charge of improper conduct, which took place last Friday.

Rio Ferdinand has already attended the personal FA hearing in response to his charge of improper conduct for his reaction to a Twitter message, according to reports.

The Manchester United defender had reacted to a tweet from another Twitter user referring to Ashley Cole as a "choc ice", in reference to the Chelsea left-back's testimony in defence of John Terry at Westminster Magistrates Court, when the former England captain was accused of racially abusing QPR's Anton Ferdinand.

It is now claimed that the hearing in relation to the charge has already taken place, having been held on Friday, August 10th. Ferdinand will now await the verdict, which could see him suspended for a number of games if he is found guilty - an event which Manchester United will be desperate to avoid, given their current defensive injuries.

John Terry is also appearing before an FA hearing to respond to the same accusations which Ferdinand was referring to, and was recently given the backing of England manager Roy Hodgson.
