WATCH: Ellie Downie fell during her uneven bars routine. Ouch!

Things didn't go to plan for the team from Great Britain at the Gymnastics World Cup, with both Ellie Downie and Joe Fraser missing out on medals.

Eighteen gymnasts took part in the All-Around World Cup Series event on Saturday in Birmingham's Genting Arena.

Ellie started off well, scoring 14.3 in the vault to sit second after the first of six events, but then fell twice on the bars and once on the beam, costing her points.

Thankfully she was ok and was able to get back up and carry on with her routine, but was understandably disappointed.

In the end Ellie Downie finished seventh, with an all-around score of 49.333.

Despite her difficulties she showed good composure, and was backed by the home crowd.

Afterwards she said: "The crowd were amazing! When I put my arm up for vault I was like 'wow'! The crowd were insane, and I think that's what got me through today."

"It was quite tough for me today," she added. "I definitely could have put in a better performance, but it was a heavy week for me after the British last weekend."

There was also disappointment for Joe Fraser

Speaking to BBC Sport he said: "[It's] my first major competition in Birmingham - my home city. After the pommel horse, which was tricky, it got easier and easier from there.

"It's my first All-Around World Cup so for me it was just about going through the routines and getting through to move on to the Europeans."

He replaced Commonwealth Games champion Nile Wilson, who missed the competition following surgery for an ongoing neck issue.
