Earlier today, weightlifter Satish Kumar Shivalingam won India's third gold in the men's 77kg weightlifting category at Australia's Gold Coast.

And Wilson produced a stunning routine that is becoming his calling card and to secure his second Commonwealth Games gold in two days, after team success on Thursday.

England's Zoe Smith challenged for the gold after successfully completing all six of her attempts but had to settle for silver.

Gareth Evans of Wales won the men's 69kg and Australia's Tia-Clair Toomey thrilled the home crowd when she won the women's 58kg category with a total lift of 201kg. "I know it's bad to wish ill for someone but I couldn't help it", Lather said, breaking into a laugh after the medal ceremony.

While Lather had luck on his side as his nearest rival fouled the all-important final clean and jerk lift, Chanu had her fortitude to thank as she claimed her second successive CWG gold despite nursing a nagging back problem here.

There was a winning start for Team Bath's Eboni Beckford-Chambers, Bournemouth-born Geva Mentor, competing in her fifth commonwealth games, and the rest of the England netball squad who put in a strong second half showing to overcome Scotland 74-28. Yogeshwar Singh, the 20-year-old from Ambala, finished 14th in the men's individual all-around final with a total of 75.600 points.

Google has its own take on the tech, secretly experimenting with it within an initiative called Project Soli . The iPhone X's OLED screen curves slightly at the bottom, but the shape is mostly invisible to the human eye.

All of medals for India here have come from weightlifting category.

"I can't believe I've got a Commonwealth Games gold medal and to feel as though I gave so much to the team as well, it's really satisfying", said Gentle, who missed out on a podium finish in the individual event. Indian Women's Team lost 57-66 to Jamaica in a very competitive game whereas the Men's team lost 87-96 to Cameroon in a game where Cameroon had an unbelievable comeback and took the game away from India's hands.

India now has four gold medals, silver and a bronze in the event, leaving them fourth on the overall tally.

New Zealand has two players through to the semifinals of singles play at the squash competition with women's second seed and world No.4 Joelle King and men's second seed and world No.9 Paul Coll winning their delayed quarter-final contests in relatively straightforward fashion.

South African Mona Pretorius hit a personal best in her final attempt to win the bronze medal.
