Daiki Hashimoto recovered from disappointment two days ago in the team event with Japan to win the individual all-around final, having enough to hold off China's Zhang Boyeng for gold at the Artistic Gymnastics World Championships in Liverpool.

After the nation finished top of team all-around qualification, Hashimoto ended the day with low scores in the horizontal bar and vault - playing his part in Japan finishing runners-up to China.

This time, the Olympic champion Hashimoto stepped his performances up with the best score in the pommel horse, as well as second-place finishes on floor, rings, vault and horizontal bar to end with a total of 87.198.

He fended off China's team talisman Zhang, who excelled on the rings and parallel bars, as well as matching Hashimoto on the vault and horizontal bar.

Zhang claimed silver with a score of 86.765.

Japan got the one-three finish when Wataru Tanigawa played it safe on the horizontal bar to finish on a total of 85.231.

American Brody Malone was just 0.300 points off the podium in fourth having recorded the best horizontal bar score with 14.500 - with a total of 84.931.

Britain's Jake Jarman placed third on the floor in the final rotation to leapfrog several gymnasts into fifth on his World Championships debut with a score of 82.865 overall.
