Tehran (KNA) - Former US gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar has had another 40 years added to the jail sentences he is currently serving.

Nassar, 54, had pleaded guilty to sexually abusing girls when they sought treatment for injuries at Twistars, a gymnastics club in Michigan.

The disgraced doctor was already going to spend the rest of his life in jail for two previous sentences: Between 40 and 175 years on a separate but related case in a different county, as well as 60 years in federal prison for child abuse images.

Today's sentence - which was for 40 to 125 years - is his final criminal punishment for offending that saw him prey on more than 260 women, with some of the abuse occurring decades ago.
