Trouble with Timeout function

Hi 
I am trying to make use of the timeout/run after function for a flow I'm building and it is not working as expected. My flow looks a bit like this

I am trying to get the 'Send an email' connector to run after the 'Start and wait for an approval 2', has timed-out after 5 minutes [PT5M](for testing). My understanding is that if approval 2 has not been actioned (approved/rejected) after 5 minutes it will timeout and the email will be sent instead of condition 2 kicking in finalizing the flow to give it a 'sucessful' run. Can anyone tell me where I am going wrong or have misunderstood how to use these functions? At the moment the timeout is not kicking in to send the email. Happy to provide more detail if any is needed.
