Russia’s Nikita Nagornyy won the men's World Championship all-around title for the first time when he held off his compatriot and reigning title holder Artur Dalaloyan in Stuttgart.
22-year-old Nagornyy, already the reigning European champion, recorded a score of 88.772 points, ahead of Dalaloyan’s mark of 87.165. Ukraine’s Oleg Verniaiev took the bronze medal with a score of 86.973.
This was the second gold medal of the week for Nagornyy, who was a member of the Russia squad that won the team competition on Wednesday.
Great Britain’s Joe Fraser will have been pleased with his 8th-place finish ahead of the weekend's individual finals, while James Hall’s fall from the high bar prevented him finishing higher than 14th overall.
