Rhys McClenaghan blamed a recent shoulder injury as he crashed out of the World Championships in Doha.

The 19-year-old Commonwealth and European champion toppled from the pommel midway through qualifying.

McClenaghan said: "I had a shoulder injury one and half weeks ago, and as a result I'd done maybe three full routines in training, as opposed to almost 100 before the Commonwealths and Euros."
