Simone Biles has announced that she will be going for Olympic gold in Tuesday's balance beam final in Tokyo.

The Team USA gymnast shocked the world after she pulled out of a team final last week, then withdrawing from three more individual events.

However, all is not lost as she is to make one last effort to secure a gold medal, and will compete in tomorrow's balance beam event with teammate Sunisa Lee.

A statement from USA Gymnastics said: "We are so excited to confirm that you will see two US athletes in the balance beam final tomorrow.

"Suni Lee AND Simone Biles!! Can't wait to watch you both!"

This is a breaking news story and more details will be added as the story develops.
