British gymnastics fans knew Max Whitlock was in with a very good chance of winning the country's first ever Olympic medal in the sport when they tuned in to watch this evening.
What they weren't expecting was that the 23-year-old - world champion on the pommel horse - would bag the bling on the floor.
