Isle of Man gymnast Joe Smith has had to withdraw from the Commonwealth Games after picking up an injury whilst training.

The twenty-two year old gymnast sustained an achilles injury during a practice session last night.

The coaching staff in Delhi have confirmed Joe is in plaster and on crutches as a result of the injury.

It's a blow for the team who cleaned up in men's gymnastics at the Island Games last year.
