Geraint Thomas has become the first ever Welshman to win a cycling gold medal at the Commonwealth Games.

He beat New Zealand's Jack Bauer in the Men's Road Race, despite a late puncture.

Thomas has also been announced as the Team Wales flag bearer for tonight's closing ceremony.

"It will be an honour to carry the flag at the close of the Commonwealth Games.

I am a proud Welshman, I don't get to wear the Welsh jersey that often so to carry the flag tonight as well will be a proud moment for me and my family."

– Geraint Thomas

The closing ceremony signifies the end of the 2014 Games, with Team Wales taking home 36 medals, making it the most successful Games to date.
