Simone Biles has been responding to fans' questions after she pulled out of the Tokyo Olympic Games to focus on her mental health.

In a series of question and answer segments on her Instagram Stories, Biles talked about the so-called twisties, which she describes as "the craziest feeling ever." She says that when it is happening she doesn't know how she is going to land some of her gymnastics routines.

The decorated US Olympian also had a strong message for anyone who said she quit the Tokyo Games.

She posted: "I didn't quit my mind & body are simply not in sync. I don't think you realize how dangerous this is on hard/competition surface. Nor do I have to explain why I put health first. Physical health is mental health."
