Gymnastics: Tweddle misses out

Beth Tweddle narrowly missed out on winning another British gymnastics medal by finishing fourth in the uneven bars final.

The 23-year-old was bidding to follow Louis Smith onto the podium after he won bronze yesterday but was punished for two small errors - including one on the landing - and was awarded a score of 16.625.

As the penultimate competitor to go, Tweddle knew she needed to beat home favourite Yang Yilin's 16.650 to be in medal contention, but she fell agonisingly short and had to settle for fourth place - her best Olympic finish.

Gold went to another Chinese gymnast in He Kexin, with the silver going to the USA's Nastia Liukin.
