"I have thought long and hard about my position in the England football team in the light of the reporting and events over the last few weeks. "It has always been an honour to play for England. However, after careful thought I believe my position in the squad is now untenable and potentially divisive.

"I have today informed the management of this decision. I wish the team all the very best in South Africa."
