Wales coach Warren Gatland has thanked Adam Jones for his contribution to Wales, and has offered best wishes for his future in the game.
The prop announced his retirement from the international stage on Twitter earlier today.
I want to thank Adam for his achievement in winning 95 caps for Wales and earning five test appearances for the British and Irish Lions.
There is no doubt that Adam has played a huge part in Wales' success. He has three Grand Slams and a Championship to his name. That is an unbelievable record.
He made a big impact and contribution on the international stage and we all wish him well for his future career with the Cardiff Blues
Wales prop Adam Jones has announced his retirement from international rugby - just five days after being left out of this year's Six Nations squad.
As well as being a triple Grand Slam winner, the 33-year-old won 95 caps for Wales and 5 as a British and Irish Lion.
Before the squad was announced, Jones had been strongly backed to earn a recall, especially when Scarlets forward Rhodri Jones was ruled out of the entire tournament due to a shoulder injury.
In an interview with the Sunday Times, Jones said he'd made up his mind before Christmas that he'd step down if he failed to make the Six Nations cut.
I told myself then that I would train as hard as I can and get as fit as I can. If it didn't happen, then I'll call it a day.
It's obviously not the way I would want to finish, it's not how I planned it in my head, and I hope no-one thinks I'm simply quitting.
Today he took to Twitter to thank Welsh fans for their support.
Playing for Wales has been the proudest achievement of my career & I want to thank all the loyal Welsh fans for their unwavering support
Jones will continue to play for the Cardiff Blues, who secured a place in the European Challenge Cup quarter-final yesterday.
