Tottenham winger Gareth Bale has suffered an injury that will rule him out of Great Britain's Olympic football squad, Press Association Sport understands.

Bale was widely anticipated to be included in manager Stuart Pearce's GB team for the Olympic tournament starting at the end of next month.

But it is understood the 22-year-old Wales international has suffered a recurrence of an old back and hip injury after pulling up while running.
