Kat Driscoll said after: “It’s very emotional, at one point I wasn’t even sure I’d continue my career after Rio and now I’m here at another World Championships.

“I’m so proud to have won this medal with these girls. Having only three in the team adds pressure and every one of us has stood up to that and performed.

“Izzy has been incredible and in her first senior Worlds and Laura has shown again how good she is.

“The medal is testament to the GB trampoline programme and all the hard work that goes on back at Lilleshall with the support of our coaches, British Gymnastics and our EIS support staff.”
