Great Britain win all-around team gold while Bryony Page takes trampoline silver on the final day of the World Trampoline Gymnastics Championships in Sofia.

Great Britain ended a dominant Trampoline Gymnastics Championships by taking the gold medal in the all-around team event in Sofia, Bulgaria.

Athletes in all three disciplines - trampoline, tumbling and double-mini trampoline - took to the arena for Saturday's finale, with GB and the USA both ending on a combined 29 points.

The Brits' higher overall score saw them edge top spot ahead of their American counterparts, as Page scored a maximum five team points for her trampoline routine, while Portugal took 25 points for the silver.

Prior to the team final, Page - the defending women's trampoline champion from 2021 - secured the silver medal in the individual event with a total score of 55.950.

Despite posting the highest execution score of 16.900, Page was outgunned on difficulty by Hikaru Mori, as the Japanese athlete scored 56.230 to take the world title - Yicheng Hu of China was third with 55.810.

However, Page and Isabelle Songhurst experienced a forgettable competition in the synchro final, finishing dead last with just 5.340 on the board.

Elsewhere, Andrew Stamp finished in a respectable fourth place in the men's individual trampoline final, scoring 57.990, less than five 10ths adrift of bronze medallist Yamoto Ishikawa (58.480).

Great Britain travel home from the Championships having topped the medal table with four golds, four silvers and two bronzes, with world champions also being crowned in men's and women's team tumbling, as well as Comfort Yeates winning gold in the women's tumbling final.
