American Simone Biles has become the first gymnast to win 13 world titles.

The 21‑year‑old won vault gold at the World Championships in Qatar.

It was her third world title in this year's Championships and she has now broken the all‑time record set by Belarus male gymnast Vitaly Scherbo in 1996.                            

This was Biles 17th World Championship medal overall and she is three shy of the all‑time record of 20, held by Russia's Svetlana Khorkina.
