Plans for Great Britain football teams at the 2016 Olympics in Rio have been scrapped by the Football Association.

The English FA had hoped to field men's and women's teams at the Games but has failed to gain support from the other home nations' associations.

The FA wrote to those associations on Monday to inform them of the decision.

GB fielded men's and women's teams at London 2012, with both sides knocked out at the quarter-final stage.
