Great Britain's men's football team are out of the Olympics after they were beaten 5-4 on penalties by South Korea after their quarter-final ended 1-1 in normal time in Cardiff.

Chelsea striker Daniel Sturridge missed the vital last kick, allowing Celtic's Ki Sung-Yueng to send South Korea into a last-four meeting with Brazil at Old Trafford on Tuesday.

Aaron Ramsey successfully converted a penalty in the 36th minute to cancel out Ji Dong-Won's opener on 29 minutes. However, he missed from the spot when he had the chance to put Britain in front in normal time.
