Simone Biles has broken a long-standing world gymnastic world record.

Last week she became the most decorated gymnast in World Championships.

The American, 22, surpassed the overall medal record held by Vitaly Scherbo by winning on the balance beam.

The victory was her 24th medal, with 18 of them gold.

Having won four gold medals and one bronze at Rio 2016, Biles now has 30 medals in World Championships and Olympics.

She is now only three short of the record held by Scherbo, who represented the Soviet Union in the 1990s.
