British riders have won 29 medals on the Gold Coast - nine gold, 12 silver and eight bronze - compared to 25 medals in Glasgow four years ago and 14 in Delhi in 2010. Amit, who was chasing his third successive global gold, was beaten by England's European silver-medallist Galal Yafai.

Indian wrestlers did the nation proud as Sumit Malik won the 125 kilogram freestyle title while Vinesh Phogat took women's 50kg gold.

Australia tops the chart with 72 gold medals.

India's Gaurav Solanki holds his gold medal during the medal ceremony for the men's 52kg boxing event during the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games at the Oxenford Studios venue on the Gold Coast.

India is now at the third position in the medal's tally.

New Zealand clinched the women's field hockey gold medal with an upset 4-1 win over Australia, while England beat India 6-0 for bronze. Mary Kom showed full-patience and calmness in the first round and waited for opportunities, and when she got opportunities she roasted well with her punch.

World No 1 Kidambi Srikanth defeated England's Rajiv Ouseph 21-10, 21-17 to enter men's singles final. Lake missed at 1.95 m and had two tries at 1.97 but missed both.

Earlier, Amit Panghal won silver medal after losing to England's Galal Yafai in men's 46-49kg final. "There were times throughout the tournament where we were not as sound as we have been and as we went on we found we did that better".

Then Georgia Sheehan and Esther Qin picked up Silver and Bronze in the Women's 1m Springboard respectively, before Bedggood was in action again, winning Bronze in the Men's Synchronised 3m Springboard alongside Matthew Carter.
