American gymnast Simone Biles has pulled out of Sunday's vault and uneven bars gymnastics finals at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

The four-time Olympic champion had also withdrawn from Tuesday's women's team final and Thursday's individual all-around final, saying she had to focus on her mental health.
