Theorem: Nested Closed Subset Theorem

Let \(X\) be a complete metric space, and let $$A_0\supset A_1\supset A_2\supset A_3\supset \ldots$$ be a sequence of non-empty subsets of \(X\) with diameters converging against \(0\), formally
$$\lim_{k\to\infty}\operatorname{diam}(A_k)=0.$$
Then the intersection of all of these subsets a single point.
