Nyon, Switzerland:

UEFA has said Chelsea captain John Terry is eligible to lift the Champions League trophy even though he is suspended for the final against Bayern Munich.

UEFA said in a statement to The Associated Press that "John Terry will be allowed to lift the trophy if Chelsea win, and collect medals."

UEFA said Terry can join his team-mates in the dressing room in Munich on May 19. However, he cannot sit on the bench with coaches and substitutes during the match.

Terry will miss the final after being sent off for putting his knee into Barcelona forward Alexis Sanchez's back during Chelsea's semi-final win on Tuesday.

Three other Chelsea players, and three of the Bayern team are also suspended.
