Dan Greaves strikes Commonwealth gold for England

Dan Greaves struck Commonwealth gold for England with victory in the F42/44 discus.

The 31-year-old, who took silver at the London Olympics, came out on top of his domestic duel with Wales' Aled Davies, winning with a throw of 59.21 metres.

That converted to 1023 points in the mixed-classification event, with Davies (at 46.83 metres and 1012 points) taking the silver

That now equals the number of medals Wales managed to achieve at the Delhi Games four years ago - and puts them just eight shy of the pre-Games target of 27.

After a tight start it was a relatively comfortable win for the trio of Jonathan Tomlinson, Marc Wyatt and Paul Taylor, who beat Australia 16-13.

Commonwealth Games backers have confirmed they are investigating a giant poster on the North Wales seafront, which reads 'Proud to support Team England'.

The image, at Rhos-on-Sea in Conwy, features English Paralympic athlete Jade Jones and is accompanied by the hashtag #GoEngland - despite Wales competing at Glasgow 2014 in its own right.

SSE and its supply brands, including SSE SWALEC, are proud supporters of Glasgow 2014 and the four home nations, Team Wales, Team England, Team Scotland and Team Northern Ireland.

We are concerned about the placement of this advert and will work with the media owner to investigate.

BREAKING: Michael Gault OBE announces his retirement from competitive shooting after equalling the all-time Commonwealth Games medal tally.

Gault misses out on 19th Commonwealth medal

Shooter Michael Gault's bid to become the outright most successful Commonwealth athlete of all time is over after he missed out on a place in the final of the 50m air pistol.

Competing at his sixth Games, the 60-year-old Norfolk grandfather drew level with fellow shooter Phillip Adams on Saturday when he won his 18th medal, taking bronze in the 10m discipline.

Afterwards Gault said he had achieved what he came out of retirement for, and that he would be "chillaxing" when he stepped back on to the range for today's event.

But despite shooting a competitive total of 529 from his six rounds, Gault bowed out of the competition in 13th place.
