On the other end of the spectrum were Mary Kom and Sushil.

The mother of three and now politician in India made a successful return to the ring at a major multi-sports event on Saturday. The final medal came on Sunday as the men's doubles badminton pair of Satwik Rankireddy and Chirag Shetty claimed Silver after losing to England's Marcus Ellis and Chris Langridge in the gold medal match.

"It's so surreal, I can't believe I just won the gold medal", said New Zealand captain Sarah Goss.

"Even my sports minister came to cheer me on, my country will be very proud", said Kom, who is a member of Upper House in India's Parliament. The match reportedly went on for 47 minutes and was evenly contested.

India bagged a total of six medals on the final day. "So if my body allows, I will go". "That should never happen", she said.

Victory in the final came after Jo Harten's last-second goal sealed their 56-55 semi-final win over Jamaica and coach Tracey Neville admitted the stress had got to her.

However, Australia thrashed Canada 87-47 in the men's basketball final, Shelley won the marathon and David Palmer and Zac Alexander were crowned men's doubles squash champions on the final day.

In the women's table tennis event, the Indian team won its first ever Commonwealth Gold.

If the weather wasn't already warm enough on the Gold Coast, the velodrome here was heated to 36 degrees to provide faster track conditions for the riders.

City rebounds to rout Spurs
The decision allowed Gundogan to step up and send Lloris diving the wrong way, pushing City into a 2-0 lead in the 25th minute. Ilkay Gundogan has been charged with the task of covering Fernandinho's absence for Manchester City against Tottenham .

Another former Australian Idol star, Anthony Callea.

Australia's retiring captain Mark Knowles bowed out a victor after the Kookaburras won their sixth straight Commonwealth Game title by beating New Zealand 2-0 to win the men's title at the Commonwealth Games. India remains number three on the table with 25 golds and 59 medals overall.

Seven thought it would be able to broadcast the athletes entering Gold Coast's Carrara Stadium as per usual protocol, however, the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games Corporation (GOLDOC) had other ideas. "Lot of credit to them for pulling off against Malaysia".

Sprint queen, Blessing Okagbare led Nigeria's women's 4x100m relay team to win bronze.

Indian boxers were in the limelight after winning several medals. "Way too long. Dare I say a little self indulgent".

She received plenty of tactical help during the race from her five fellow Australians. "And I'm furious - they're actually wrecking a tradition that is so important and part of the Commonwealth Games".

"The last thing they want is standing in a field for an hour waiting to get into a closing ceremony", Beattie told the Seven Network's "Sunrise" breakfast show on Monday. Jonathan Mould of Wales took silver and South Africa's Clint Hendricks took the bronze, all in the same time.

Several high profile athletes like England's Adam Peaty and Australia's Kyle Chalmers appeared to be down on performance, as is often the case at this stage in the Olympic cycle.
