Paul Pogba to offer support to American gymnastics superstar Simone Biles
Paul Pogba has become the latest sporting star to offer his support to American gymnastics superstar Simone Biles after she pulled out from her individual all-round final to focus on her mental health.
Biles, who is the most successful US gymnast of all time decided to pull out just a day after she dramatically withdrew from the team event final, with Jordan Chiles replacing her before Team USA went on to claim the silver medal.
The 24-year-old admitted on Tuesday she has been struggling with her mental health and that the pressure and weight of expectation has taken its toll.
The American has been receiving huge support from the sporting world and her fellow athletes with Manchester United star Pogba becoming the latest to reach out to Biles.
‘A moment of undeniable strength from @simone_biles,’ Pogba wrote on Twitter.
‘We always focus on the physical aspect of health but the mental aspect is just as important. When you take care of both, you will flourish in life! #SimoneBiles GOAT’.
