South Korea's Yang Hak Seon wins gold in the vault final, while Great Britain's Kristian Thomas fails to claim a medal.

South Korea's Yang Hak Seon has won gold in the gymnastics vault final while Great Britain's Kristian Thomas missed out on reaching the podium.

The world champion, who was the last to perform his two vaults, stormed ahead of his competitors to clinch the top honour after faultless jumps, which earned him a combined 16.533 score.

Great Britain's Kristian Thomas executed a double pike in his first vault, which racked up a 16.366 score but his second attempt let him down after he failed to land on his feet and could only manage to score 14.700.

Thomas, who secured a bronze medal with his compatriots in the men's team artistic event, finished in eighth, with Russia's Denis Ablyazin winning silver and Ukraine's Igor Radivilov clinching bronze.
