The US gymnast Simone Biles withdrew from the individual all-around final at the Olympic Games in Tokyo on Wednesday, citing mental health concerns. The four-time Rio de Janeiro Olympic Games champion had already pulled out of the team final the day before. Commentators praise the 24-year-old's move as courageous and hope that she will also become a role model outside the sport.
