The Premier League has issued the following statement ahead of Sunday's Barclays Premier League between Chelsea and Queens Park Rangers:
"The Premier League position on the pre-match handshake convention remains consistent. In all normal circumstances it must be observed.
"However, after discussions with both Chelsea and Queens Park Rangers about the potential and specific legal context in relation to John Terry and Anton Ferdinand the decision has been taken to suspend the handshake convention for Sunday's match."
