Aly Raisman with her parents after Glasgow team final

US Aly Raisman has responded to Russia's Viktoria Komova's second heartfelt apology.

"❤️ All the girls appreciate your apology and we wish you the best in finals tomorrow" wrote Raisman.

According to Aimee Boorman, Simone Biles' coach, the Russian gymnast gave a personal apology to the American gymnasts during training.

Viktoria Komova issued two apologies after sparking fury after team finals in Glasgow when she accused the American gymnasts of taking steroids and that Great Britain and China only won because of luck.

Her first apology took place on VK immediately after receiving backlash following her infamous comment, while she posted her second apology on Aly Raisman's Instagram.
