Det krävs mod för att göra det Simone Biles gjorde, säger Rory McIlroy.

Den nordirländske golfaren hyllar amerikanskans beslut att släppa sin OS-dröm för något viktigare.

– När tidernas bästa gymnast vågar prata om sina problem så inspirerar det människor, säger McIlroy.

Hemmahoppet Naomi Osaka, som tände OS-elden under invigningen, har sedan tidigare lyft ämnet, och efter att ha slagits ut redan i tredje omgången berättade tennisstjärnan om svårigheterna att hantera pressen inför OS-debuten.
