The organizers of the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games have apologised for Sunday's closing ceremony on Sunday night which has been roundly criticised for not including athletes. Neville, who is the sister of Gary and Phil Neville, revealed Gary had been watching the match on TV.

Tracey Neville, the head coach of the Roses, appropriated Sir Alex Ferguson's fabled remark after his side had won the 1999 Champions League in the dying seconds against Bayern Munich in Barcelona.

Gary Neville was cheering on from his living room in the early hours of the morning, United Kingdom time.

"What we did is create the environment in which the team could support each other and feel comfortable".

"I was disappointed, but I managed to pick myself up", said Ouseph.

"Hopefully this will give people inspiration to go out and join a club and be part of this dream", she said.

Kenya bagged 17 medals, four gold, seven silver and six bronze to finish 3rd in Africa behind South Africa and Nigeria.

For Tracey Neville, a Commonwealth bronze medallist in 1998, the victory fulfilled a long held dream.

England won their way into their first Games final with a last-second goal against Jamaica a day earlier and reproduced the last-gasp heroics against the world's No.1 team to claim gold.

US brand experience agency Jack Morton Worldwide controversially won the lucrative $33.15 million contract over three of Australia's best entertainment producers two years ago.

Games CEO Mark Peters said organisers had "put in place a wide range of measures to ensure athlete welfare and the response of medical staff this morning was within agreed response guidelines and timeframes". "This is the best day of my life". They have quite a unique relationship I would imagine.

Incredibly, just as it had in their semi-final victory over Jamaica, it came down to one shot and one second - the final second of a pulsating 60-minute match that made light of predictions that reigning world and Commonwealth champions Australia would retain their title easily.

Australia led by four goals in the final quarter, but England wrested the initiative and Housby delivered when the pressure was at its height. She too missed, but the umpire's whistle sounded and a penalty was awarded against the Australian defence. Better than I ever dreamed.

Fittingly, the last word belongs to the 23-year-old Carlisle player.

His enthusiasm to stay on at the venue to savour the moment and to ensure the spectators knew "New Zealand was in the house" really charmed me.
