Japan has won the gold medal in men's team all-around gymnastics.

Kohei Uchimura led the way as the Japanese bounced back from a fourth-place score during Saturday's qualifying round to win Monday's competition with a final score of 274.094 points.

Russia held off a charge from China to take the silver medal, while the Chinese settled for bronze.

The team from the United States had hoped to challenge for a medal after a disappointing fifth-place finish in London in 2012, but a series of miscues early in the competition and a fall by Danell Leyva from the high bar in the last event of the day landed the American team in fifth place once again, just behind Great Britain.
