CWG 2018: Boxer Gaurav Solanki wins gold medal

For the first time since 1998, the Indian hockey teams will return home without a medal from the Commonwealth Games.

The day's medal haul began with boxing great Mary Kom winning gold in her first Commonwealth Games.

Actress Priyanka Chopra, who is now shooting for her American TV show, Quantico, in Ireland, took to social media to congratulate boxer Mary Kom on winning gold in her maiden Commonwealth Games appearance.

Isaac Makwala guided Botswana to the men's 4x400m relay gold with a sublime anchor leg.

"For me the highlight was the first match against England, the last two minutes and we'd hoped it was also possible now, but that's too bad".

Kumar lost 5-0 against the Englishman to bag India's 16th Silver in this year's Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast. Prior to her heroics at Gold Coast, Mary Kom had her sleeves rolled at the the Strandja Memorial Tournament in Bulgaria where she came second on the podium and clinched silver for India. Mary Kom showed full-patience and calmness in the first round and waited for opportunities, and when she got opportunities she roasted well with her punch. "Australia is the best place to play. the competition is the hardest in the world so that's obviously helped get me where I am". "It's different than any other game", he said.

"I am disappointed with the result".

Giving a taste of her bond with her mentor, she added, "He actually said it 3 days back".

England's women won gold in the 4x100m relay with Jamaica claiming silver and Nigeria taking bronze.

Boxing: Two Indian boxers Manish Kaushik in the 60 kg and Gautam Solanki in the 52 kg category reached the finals today.

Gold Coast: Indian men's hockey team finished a disappointing fourth at the Commonwealth Games as it struggled to breach a stout England defence to lose the bronze medal match 1-2 here on Saturday.

India had beaten England 2-1 in Pool matches but were unable to produce the same magic in the bronze medal encounter.
