United States gymnast Simone Biles has pulled out of the women's team final at Tokyo 2020.

Biles, 24, left the arena after scoring 13.766 on the vault in the first rotation - her lowest score on that apparatus in her Olympics career.

All three Russians who vaulted scored higher, as did her USA team-mates.

Biles is the most successful US gymnast of all time and winner of four gold medals and a bronze at Rio 2016.

She is next due compete on Thursday, when she will defend her Olympic title in the women's all-around final.
