The first all-woman spacewalk has had to be called off, because of a shortage of medium-sized spacesuits.

NASA says Friday's mission to change batteries on the International Space Station will be carried out by a male and female astronaut instead.

The problem came about after Anne McClain realised the smaller outfit fitted her better than the size she had been wearing.
