Russian teenager Aliya Mustafina won bronze at the North Greenwich Arena.

Mustafina, 17, scored 14.900 to take third place ahead of Italy's Vanessa Ferrari, whose routine was also worth 14.900 but given a lower execution rating.

Kseniia Afanaseva was bidding to become the first woman since 1988 to win Olympic gold as reigning world champion, but the Russian could only finish sixth with her score of 14.566 in the opening routine.

Earlier on Tuesday, Raisman beat Ponor to bronze in the beam.
