Coverage: Watch live coverage on BBC One, BBC Two, Red Button, Connected TV, online & the BBC Sport app from 8 October.

The 49th World Gymnastics Championships are taking place in Stuttgart, Germany, from 4-13 October and the BBC will be showing the finals live on television and online.

The 10-day event will act as a key qualification event for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. The top nine placed nations after qualifying (excluding those countries that finished in the top three at the 2018 World Championships) will book their team places in Tokyo.

It is expected 93 nations will be represented in Germany.

Max Whitlock won Great Britain's sole medal with a silver on the pommel horse in the 2018 Championships and the 26-year-old will form part of an experienced squad travelling to Germany.

It could be a record-breaking Championships for American superstar Simone Biles as she tries to break Vitaly Scherbo's record of 23 world medals.

You can follow all the action from the Hanns-Martin-Schleyer-Halle across BBC One, BBC Two, Red Button, Connected TVs and the BBC iPlayer, as well as the BBC Sport website and mobile app.
