Amal Clooney is no longer advising the Greek government on how to get the Elgin Marbles returned to Athens after officials decided to drop their legal fight.

The British barrister was hired by Greece to advise the state ahead of a possible court case aimed at forcing the British Museum to give up the sculptures, which originally came from the Parthenon temple.

Greece has ruled out taking legal action against the UK to reclaim the Elgin Marbles from the British Museum.

In an unexpected move, Greece's culture minister said the country would pursue a "diplomatic and political" approach to retrieving the sculptures instead.

In doing so, the country has rejected the advice of barrister Amal Clooney, who had urged Greece to take Britain to the International Court of Justice.
