With Olympic stars Usain Bolt and Tom Daley on the scene, day 10 was always going to be a high octane day of sport!

Athletics

Jamaica dominated both the Men's and Women's 4X100m Relay at Hampden tonight (last night), truly making the capacity crowd emit the famous 'Hampden Roar'. After neat interchanges from Jason Livermore to Kemar Bailey-Cole to the man of the moment Usain Bolt, the Caribbean nation set the pace of the relay and recorded a Commonwealth record of 37.58.

Boxing

Josh Taylor's cultured display (SCO) secured Gold in the Men's Light Welterweight at The SSE Hydro and ensured Scotland's 50th medal of the Commonwealth Games.

Only four CGAs have won more medals at the Games in Glasgow (England, Australia, Canada and India). The 1986 Commonwealth Games in Edinburgh was the most recent edition of the Games in which Scotland made the top five of the medal tally.

Diving

Tom Daley (ENG) won diving Gold in the Men's 10m platform with 516.55 points at the Royal Commonwealth Pool on Saturday.

Netball

New Zealand and Australia clinched a place in yesterday's netball final by beating England and Jamaica respectively on Saturday.

Powerlifting

Esther Oyema (NGR) lifted a new world record of 126kg on her way to becoming the first athlete to win two Gold medals in powerlifting.

Table Tennis

England secured its first medal sweep of Gold, Silver and Bronze in any table tennis event in the mixed doubles at Scotstoun Sports Campus on Saturday.
