David Beckham has been left out of the Team GB squad - and Gareth Bale has been ruled out because of an injury.

Ryan Giggs (pictured), Craig Bellamy and Micah Richards have been included in Stuart Pearce's 18-man squad as the three over-23 players.

"Naturally I'm very disappointed," said Beckham. "There will be no bigger supporter of the team than me."

It had been expected that the 37-year-old former England captain would represent Team GB at the London Olympics.

The selection of Richards, who played under Pearce at Manchester City, comes after the defender refused a place on the standby list for England's Euro 2012 squad.

Players who went to the European Championship are not available for selection. The remaining 15 players must have been born after January 1, 1989.
