Graeme Swann, the England off-spinner, has retired from all international cricket and first-class cricket with immediate effect.

Swann, aged 34, will not play in the final two Tests of the Ashes tour and will finish his career with 255 wickets from his 60 Tests.

However, on a disappointing tour of Australia in which England have gone down 3-0 after the first three Tests, Swann has been one of the senior players who has failed to have an impact and has managed only seven wickets at 80.

In an official statement released by the ECB, Swann said his decision had been made "after a great deal of consideration".
