Mother-of-three Kom, the subject of a Bollywood film in 2014, won a unanimous points decision over Northern Ireland's Kristina O'Hara in their light-flyweight final on Australia's Gold Coast. Although he fell slightly short of the target in his second attempt at 84.78, his third effort was his record best, at 86.47 metres. The 20-year-old showed he is one for the future with a performance that had brilliance written all over it.

Lauded by organisers as "inspirational" and "innovative", the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games have come to an end in a heavily-criticised closing ceremony, with Channel Seven's hosts ripping into the event's organisers live on air.

Kenya's Julius Karinga and Kenneth Mungara finished ninth and 10th respectively while Nicholas Kamakya was placed second last. India remains number three on the table with 25 golds and 59 medals overall.

Prime Minister Houenipwela said he hopes the facilities the Government will build in preparation for the 2023 Pacific Games will help the country's athletes train and pave the way for Solomon Islands to win more medals at the Commonwealth Games and other global competitions.

Saina and Sindhu were involved in an intense, high tempo women's singles final.
