Simone Biles has intimated that she may withdraw from the remainder of the Tokyo Olympic Games, citing a desire to prioritise her mental health.

Biles pulled out of the women’s team event at the Ariake Arena on Tuesday after making a mistake on her opening vault, briefly leaving the arena before returning to support her team-mates for the remainder of the competition.

“It is very unfortunate that it has to happen at this stage, because I definitely want to just do a little bit better but again take it one day at a time, and we’re going to see how the rest goes.

“There comes a time when I have to do it for myself. Coming in today was like fighting those demons. I have to do what’s right for me and not jeopardise my health and well-being.”

Biles later posted on Instagram, paying tribute to her team-mates.

“OLYMPIC SILVER MEDALISTS,” she wrote. “I’m SO proud of these girls right here. You girls are incredibly brave & talented!

“I’ll forever be inspired by your determination to not give up and to fight through adversity! They stepped up when I couldn’t. thanks for being there for me and having my back! forever love y’all.”
