Capello resigned after a meeting with FA chairman David Bernstein and general secretary Alex Horne at Wembley.
An FA statement read: “The Football Association can confirm that Fabio Capello has today resigned as England manager.”
On Monday, the Italian publicly challenged the FA’s decision to strip John Terry of the captaincy.
The FA’s statement continued: “The discussions focused on the FA Board’s decision to remove the England team captaincy from John Terry, and Fabio Capello’s response through an Italian broadcast interview.
“In a meeting for over an hour, Fabio’s resignation was accepted and he will leave the post of England manager with immediate effect.”
