Simone Biles pulled out of the gymnastics women’s team final at Tokyo 2020 with what was later described as a “medical issue” before the United States went on to claim silver.
Biles left the arena after the vault and was replaced by Jordan Chiles, but returned to support her team-mates.
The 24-year-old said she is just dealing with things internally that will get fixed in the next couple of days.
The Russian Olympic Committee team won gold, with Great Britain taking bronze.
