Team GB will not be playing in the 2016 Brazil Olympics football tournament.
Football Association General Secretary Alex Horne announced the decision this morning.
"The pinnacle is the World Championships and we've got the European Championships as well," Horne said.
"We play as England and we are proud to play as England and I know Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland are proud to play as their own individual entities and we wouldn't want to do anything to risk that.
"FIFA accepted the position when we were hosting the Games and I think we take that and move on."
