Gymnastics celebrity Simone Biles stated “mental health” considerations had led to her withdrawal from the ladies’s staff remaining on the Tokyo Olympics on Tuesday.

“I have to do what’s right for me and focus on my mental health and not jeopardize my health and my wellbeing,” the 24-year-old American stated after her staff had been crushed by the Russian quartet in her absence.

Biles exited the ultimate on the Ariake Gymnastics Centre after a lacklustre opening vault and walked off the competitors ground earlier than returning a short while later.

The US staff instantly withdrew her from the remainder of the ultimate.

After she joined her teammates to gather their silver medals, four-time Olympic champion Biles confirmed she had not been injured.

She stated: “I simply don’t belief myself as a lot as I used to, and I don’t know if it’s age. I’m a bit of bit extra nervous once I do gymnastics.

“I feel like I’m also not having as much fun, and I know that this Olympic Games, I wanted it to be for myself,” she stated, as she started to cry.

“It just sucks that it happens here at the Olympics Games… with the year that it’s been, I’m really not surprised the way it played out.”
