Ireland's Rhys McClenaghan has made history by winning a medal at the World Gymnastics Championships.
The 20-year-old won the bronze medal with a score of 15.4 after his pommel horse routine - finishing just 0.1 behind the eventual winner Max Whitlock.
It adds to the European and Commonwealth medals he secured in 2018.
Chih-Kai Lee of Chinese Taipei took the silver medal with a score of 15,433, finishing above the Newtownards man due to his routine having a higher degree of difficulty.
