Sam Oldham helped Great Britain to a bronze medal in Stuttgart's World Cup event in the team competition.

The Sky Academy Sports Scholar was GB's top performer on the floor, rings and high bar in qualifying for the final in which they edged out hosts Germany to take third behind China and Japan.

Oldham was on form once again in the final itself as he finished second behind Shudi Deng of China on the floor with a score of 15.100 and came third on the high bars scoring 14.900.

Sam Oldham showcases his talent on the high bar during one of his training sessions.

The 20-year-old from Nottingham was also Britain's number one athlete on the rings.

It was a superb display from British team and Oldham in particular will have been happy with his contribution having struggled with injury at the World Championships in October.

The team made up of Oldham, Dan Keatings, Dominick Cunningham and Ashley Watson now head to Glasgow for next weekend's World Cup event hoping to build on an impressive display in Germany.
