MONTREAL - Xiao Ruoteng led a Chinese one-two in the men's all-around at the World Artistic Gymnastics Championships, filling the vacuum left by the injury withdrawal of Japan's Kohei Uchimura.

Xiao, who was not on China's team at the Rio Olympics last year, totalled 86.933 points, overtaking Russian David Belyavskiy on the final rotation for the gold.

"It indeed was very breathtaking, especially in the world championships. But I told myself just keep firmly believing in myself," said Xiao, who attributed his first world title to his parents, coaches and supporters.
