On the track, world indoor champion Andrew Pozzi missed out on a medal in the men's 110m hurdles, while favourite Sophie Hitchon finished last in the hammer and sprinter Adam Gemili confirmed he'll miss the rest of the games with injury.

But there were further medals in the swimming pool for England, as Holly Hibbott and Ellie Faulkner won silver and bronze in the women's 400m freestyle, while the men earned silver in the men's 4x100m medley relay.

Away from the finals, there was progression for England's women's basketball team, who reached the semi-finals with victory over Jamaica, while the men's hockey team fought back to beat Wales and also reach the semi-finals.

England's David Luckman and Parag Patel beat Wales' Gareth Morris and Chris Watson to retain their Commonwealth Queen's Prize pairs shooting title.

Women's 1500m

Bronze medalist Melissa Courtney speaking to BBC: "I couldn't believe how many welsh fans there were out there. It was great to see them all. The last two races I've done, I just raced really smart.

"I just focused on myself and didn't think about the rest of the race. I had no idea what the pace was, I just knew I had to keep going forwards."

"Lets have it in Scotland [at the European Championships]. It keeps us guys on our toes and hopefully it will make us faster for Tokyo."

50m freestyle champion Ben Proud: "Watching these guys swim in the first legs gave me motivation. That last bit is what I don't train for.

"I can't help but feel disappointed because there was so little in it but it was great to get that silver medal."

That 100m freestyle race was my favourite of the competition. Getting that title was just absolutely incredible.

Alan and Sara

Alan Golding and Sara Casey arrived in Gold Coast a year and half ago after immigrating from Peterborough.

How are they finding it? Well, judging from their gleeful laughter at the question, they are coping.

Alan is representing Jamaica in honour of his dad and has a top-secret role in the closing ceremony.

Sara meanwhile is a volunteer at the beach volleyball and rugby sevens venues and crowded her fellow workers around her phone last night to watch the 100m finals.

Never mind entering into the spirit of the Games, they are the spirit distilled to 100% proof.

He has a message for young boxers on the art of patience given he missed out on the last two Olympics due to Anthony Joshua’s selection in 2012 and Joe Joyce’s in 2016.

By daylight!

Caster Semenya has hinted at a shot at the 35-year-old 800m world record - the oldest on the track and field books - later this week.

That will be worth tuning in for.

Women's 1500m final

The word is that we think Jess Judd is OK. It was hard to tell if she was exhausted or had suffered an injury. Waiting around on the start line as they fixed the gun can't have been much fun.

'Good battle for second'

Paula Radcliffe

Women's marathon world record holder on the Gold Coast

Breaking that record was a big aim for Caster Semenya. To bring it home, as fast as she did, there was no way the other girls could respond to that.

That was a good battle for the silver medal. Melissa Courtney will go into the next race with huge confidence and a real spring in her step.

Bronze Medal - Melissa Courtney (Wales)

Women's 1500m

Behind Semenya, Melissa Courtney sneaked a bronze medal for Wales in a personal best time of 4:03:44.

There are some worrying scenes involving England's Jess Judd, though, who is having to be helped from the track.

Steve Cram

Commentator on the Gold Coast

Caster Semenya gets the gold. But it is not only a gold medal, it is a personal best and a Games record.

What a great performance!

Starting to border on farce. Spectators leaving the stadium.

There's a spare clock being wheeled out. It runs on sand.

It's to do with timings, apparently. No starter's gun, no accurate timing.

Hasn't someone got a stopwatch?
