England's netball team wins historic Commonwealth Games gold after shock Australia win

And in Squash, Australia's duo of Zac Alexander and David Palmer take on England in the final of the Men's Doubles.

After narrowly missing the gold on the track in the 1,500m on Tuesday night, Fearnley promised he would give the marathon "everything I've got", admitting he had dreamt of winning the race since it was first confirmed on the Games schedule.

That final 43 years ago ended in defeat to Australia, but the Roses were determined not to settle for silver and delivered the gold. It is a recognition befitting of her status as the best goal keeper, and one of the best players in any position, on the planet.

"It just hurts now", she said.


"I don't really have any words".

England won the gold with a season-best of 38.13 seconds while South Africa won silver with a national record of 38.24 seconds. "It is odd playing a match against them, but you just have to go into it and do your best to win the match".

Such is the battle facing Tracey Neville's England team whenever they arrive at a major tournament, be it the World Cup or Commonwealth Games.

Team Nigeria increased their medals haul at the ongoing Commonwealth Games in Australia as the women's 4x100m relay team finished third place to win bronze on Saturday morning.
