A delighted Tweddle celebrates her historic world title
World uneven bars champion Beth Tweddle ended the year on a high by winning the event at the World Cup Final in Brazil.

The 21-year-old scored 16.3 to finish ahead of China's Ya Li with Dariya Zgoba of the Ukraine taking bronze.

Tweddle, who in September added the world crown to her European title, then took silver in the floor final.

Britain's Commonwealth champions Louis Smith and Imogen Cairns came fifth and seventh in the pommel horse and the vault respectively.

Smith, who is also the European junior champion, scored 15.775 in an event in which Qin Xiao of China won his second gold, having already won the floor.

Cairns earned 14.037 in the women's vault, which was won by China's Fei Cheng with a score of 15.6.
