Simone Biles out of Tokyo Olympics gymnastics team final

U.S. gymnastics superstar Simone Biles, the reigning Olympic champion, is out of Tuesday's team finals.

The 24-year-old Biles, considered to be the greatest gymnast of all time, huddled with a trainer after landing her vault. She then exited the competition floor with the team doctor.

Biles returned several minutes later with her right leg wrapped. She took off her bar grips, and hugged teammates Grace McCallum, Sunisa Lee and Jordan Chiles before putting on a jacket and sweatpants.

The Americans will be forced to finish the rest of the competition without her, severely hampering their bid to claim a third straight Olympic title.
