HUNTINGDON Olympic Gym's Daniel Keatings made history as he claimed Britain's first all-around medal at the Gymnastics World Championships.

Keatings claimed a stunning silver at London's O2 Arena finishing with 88.925 points.

Japan's Kohei Uchimura won gold with 91.500, while Russian Yury Ryazanov took bronze.

The 19-year-old from Corby, who trains in Huntington with England coach Paul Hall, made a nervous start in his opening event on the floor, but bounced back on the pommel horse to move into contention.

The European silver medallist was second overall behind Uchimura heading into the final event on the high bars and he held his nerve, scoring 14.475 to claim second in front of an ecstatic home crowd.
