British referee Mark Clattenburg has been given the men's Olympic football final on Saturday.
Since becoming a FIFA official six years ago, Clattenburg has taken charge of many high-profile games, including in the Premier League, Champions League, and Euro 2012 qualifiers.
The chairman of the FA referees' committee, David Elleray, said: "The appointment of Mark Clattenburg to referee the Olympic final with his English assistants Steve Child and Simon Beck is wonderful news"
"This appointment means that English officials have controlled the World Cup final, the Champions League final and Olympic final in the space of two years - a remarkable achievement which reflects well on the health of refereeing in this country.
"As with Howard Webb's World Cup final appointment, this will be an inspiration to our young referees and will mean that the 2012 Olympics will have a lasting legacy in refereeing."
Clattenburg was the man chosen to referee the Carling Cup final between Liverpool and Cardiff City last season.
