European Championships 2018: Max Whitlock misses out on pommel medal after mistake

McClenaghan's win marked Ireland's first gymnastics medal at European level.

Whitlock scored 14.000 after a mistake mid-way through his routine, with McClenaghan scoring 15.300.

"It was one of those things," Whitlock told BBC Sport. "It's something to learn from. I'm happy with my score, but it can give me confidence in another way moving forward.

"It fires me up. Our programme is on track [for Tokyo 2020], and we're looking at the bigger picture."

Commonwealth Games champion Tulloch, 22, scored 15.000 to finish behind Greece's Eleftherios Petrounias and Turkey's Ibrahim Colak in gold and silver respectively in the rings final.

"I'm still young, I'm hungry," he told BBC Sport. "I made a little mistake so there is room for improvement and I know what I need to do to get on top of the podium."

Elsewhere, Joe Fraser finished eighth in the parallel bars final before placing sixth - behind team-mate James Hall, who was fifth -on the horizontal bar.
