The Final Five was down to four Sunday night.

Olympic Gold Medalist Gabby Douglas spent Sunday night bedridden and sick, instead of enjoying the MTV Video Music Awards in New York City with the rest of her Team USA gymnastics teammates.

Douglas, 20, was slated to appear with the rest of the “Final Five” U.S. teammates — Aly Raisman, Madison Kocian, Laurie Hernandez and Simone Biles — but tweeted a photo of herself Sunday evening, wrapped in an Ohio State blanket in what appears to be a New York City hotel room.

“Out of the hospital and resting comfortably!” she wrote at 6:18 p.m. “Final Five so sad I can’t be with you all to present tonight MTV thank you xoxo.”

It was not immediately known what caused Douglas to go to the hospital or how long she was there.

Meanwhile, Douglas’ other four teammates walked the “white carpet” and posed for photographers outside Madison Square Garden where the awards ceremony was being held.

The team earned the women’s gymnastics team all-around gold medal at the Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, in addition to winning individual medals for their performances.
