Rory McIlroy has no intention of being rushed into choosing whether he represents Ireland or Great Britain at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janiero.

McIlroy competed for Ireland at golf's World Cup in 2011 but the Northern Irishman believes he is eligible to compete for Team GB because of an International Olympic Committee regulation.

"Rule 41 of the IOC states I still have a choice. They can't take it away from me," he told the Daily Express.

"If you play for a country then either change nationality or don't play for that country for three years, you still have a choice.

"I haven't played for anyone since the 2011 World Cup. Going into the Olympics that will be five years, so I'll still have a choice."

The 23-year-old two-time major winner is, however, will take his time making a final decision, adding: "The more it's talked about, the more it's going to get blown up so I'd rather not talk about it until I have to decide what to do."

Golf will make its return to the Olympic programme in Rio for the first time since 1904.
