Win or lose, Simone Biles has already claimed a slice of history at the Tokyo Olympics.

The reigning all-around champion — long-regarded as the greatest gymnast of all time — has become the first athlete to be awarded their own emoji on Twitter.

The symbol is a reference to Biles’ status as the “G.O.A.T: Greatest of all time” — a tag the 24-year-old Olympian has embraced in recent years.

The symbol is generated by inputting #SimoneBiles or #Simone in Tweets.

The American star — who has dubbed her personal goat character ‘Goldie’ — says the leotard design is meant to inspire others.

“I want kids to learn that, yes, it’s okay to acknowledge that you’re good or even great at something.”
