Wales FA take no action against player involvement in Team GB

Aaron Ramsey, Craig Bellamy, Joe Allen, Ryan Giggs and Neil Taylor have defied the FAW by agreeing to play at London 2012 for Team GB, but will face no sanctions. The FAW oppose Team GB, fearing it could threaten Wales' independence.

But chief executive Jonathan Ford said: "We've always made it very clear, we're not going to put any sanctions on any players.

"It was always their decision. They knew where we stood.

"Ultimately they were able to make the decision themselves and let's just hope they come back to us fighting fit for our World Cup qualifiers in September."
