Bulgaria silenced the home crowd by beating Russia to the five ribbons group title on the final day of the International Gymnastics Federation (FIG) World Cup in Kazan.
In a superb performance, the Bulgarians posted a score of 18.050 to finish comfortably clear of closest rivals Russia, who managed 17.900.
European champions Israel completed a high quality final in third place on 17.340.

Hosts Russia did enjoy victory in the six clubs and two hoops event today.
They scored 18.600 points to finish comfortably clear of Belarus.
