As Louis took gold, Lucy shared a picture of the amazing moment with the message: "My baby getting his Gold Medal #Euros2015 #Gymnastics #Pommel @louissmith1989."

Lucy had been by Louis' side in the French city as the competition took place and was rewarded when he came top of the leaderboard.

Louis, 25, was competing for Britain for the first time since London 2012 after coming out of retirement ahead of the 2016 Olympics in Rio.

He and fellow Brit Kristian Thomas both won gold. For Louis, it was his first gold after previously winning two Olympic medals on pommel - bronze in Beijing in 2008 and silver at London 2012.

After he was presented with his medal, Louis gallantly handed Lucy his winning bouquet.
