Biles said she was withdrawing "to focus on mental health", which she also cited as the reason for her withdrawal from the all-around artistic final after one rotation at the Ariake Gymnastics Centre on Tuesday.

A statement from USA Gymnastics on Twitter read: "After further medical evaluation, Simone Biles has withdrawn from the final individual all-around competition.

"We wholeheartedly support Simone’s decision and applaud her bravery in prioritizing her well-being. Her courage shows, yet again, why she is a role model for so many."
