Kenenisa Bekele has been left out of Ethiopia's athletics squad for the Rio Olympics.

The triple Olympic gold medallist has failed to make the team in both the marathon and the 10,000 metres.

Bekele's the world record holder in both the 5,000 and 10,000 metres, but has had a lack of recent race time.
