Great Britain won another pair of historic medals at the World Artistic Gymnastics Championships as the individual apparatus finals kicked off in Liverpool.

GB had already scooped a silver medal in the women's team final and a bronze in the men's event before Jessica Gadirova placed third in the women's all-around final.

The first gold for GB came in the men's floor final, as Giarnni Regini-Moran became the nation's first-ever world champion on the apparatus with a phenomenal routine.

Competing a hugely difficult triple-twisting double-tucked backwards somersault, the 24-year-old posted a score of 14.533 to edge out all-around champion Daiki Hashimoto of Japan.

Hashimoto collected the silver medal with 14.500 - beating Regini-Moran on execution but failing to match the Brit on difficulty - while compatriot Ryosuke Doi scored 14.266 to win bronze.

Following Regini-Moran's gold, more history was made for GB on rings, as Courtney Tulloch won bronze to become the first British man to win a world medal on the apparatus.

Tulloch scored 14.733 - following on from his two successive Commonwealth Games golds on rings - while the gold went to Adem Asil of Turkey with 14.933, and China's Zou Jingyuan won silver with 14.866.

Over on the pommel horse, Ireland's Rhys McClenaghan won his first world title with a score of 15.300, while Xiaoyuan Wei of China was crowned world champion on the women's uneven bars.

Jessica Gadirova was supposed to compete in the women's vault final but pulled out as a precautionary measure due to a foot issue, which opened the door for the USA's Jade Carey to win gold with an average of 14.516 after two routines.
