Most incredible experience of my life thanks to the whole British public you guys are amazing!!! Oh my days I'm an Olympic medalist!!!

Sam Oldham, who's 19 and from Keyworth in Nottinghamshire, celebrated his historic bronze medal win in the gymnastics and thanked his fans on twitter last night.

It's the first time in more than a century Team GB have won a team medal in Gymnastics.

Sam along with his team mates Louis Smith from Peterborough, Kristian Thomas from Wolverhampton, Max Whitlock, and Daniel Purvis, narrowly missed out on a silver medal after a judging error put them ahead of the Japanese before they appealed the final score.
