Japan (BBC) – American Sunisa Lee took Olympic gymnastics all-around gold as defending champion Simone Biles watched from the stands after withdrawing to prioritise her mental health.

The 18-year-old Olympic debutant, who helped the USA win team silver on Tuesday, finished on 57.433.

Rebeca Andrade’s 57.298 saw her claim silver – Brazil’s first ever women’s gymnastics medal at the Games.

The Russian Olympic Committee’s Angelina Melnikova took bronze.

Great Britain’s Jessica Gadirova, 16, finished 10th on 53.965, while twin sister Jennifer was 13th with 53.533.

Biles withdrew from the team final on Tuesday and later announced she would not compete in the all-around final either, but the four-time Olympic gold medallist enthusiastically cheered on her fellow gymnasts from the stands.
