Just joining us? Here’s what’s happened so far today:

Wales earn first gold with Para-cyclist James Ball’s triumph in the men’s tandem


Jake Jarman beat fellow Englishman James Hall to win gold in a tense Commonwealth Games men’s all-around gymnastics final in Birmingham


England also secured Commonwealth Games gold in both the men’s and women’s Para-triathlon PTVI finals through Katie Crowhurst and David Ellis


Northern Ireland won silver in the women’s Para-triathlon PTVI final as Chloe MacCombe and guide Catherine Sands paced their way to second


England’s Matt Walls was involved in a terrible crash at the Lee Valley VeloPark in which both he and his bike flew into the crowd

Canada’s Emma Spence, who sat third coming into this final rotation, has just taken to floor and posted a score of 12.800.

That puts her top for now with 52.350 and she will have an anxious wait to find out where that leaves her in the overall standings once everyone else has competed.

Spence certainly deserves a medal for the gymnast who has enjoyed this competition the most! She has not wiped the smile off her face all day and looks thrilled with that score.

Silver medal – Scotland – Neah Evans

As expected, Australia’s Georgia Baker takes gold and does so in style by winning the final sprint.

Baker pips Neah Evans at the line, but those six points ensure the Scot takes a hard-fought silver.

And there is bronze for Wales’ Eluned King, who doesn’t look convinced she has landed it. She has!

England’s Laura Kenny finishes in 13th.

Silver medal – England – Jess Gordon-Brown

England’s Jess Gordon-Brown takes silver in the women’s 59kg final after lifting 197kg from her snatch and clean and jerk lifts.

She finishes just behind Nigeria’s Rafiatu Folashade Lawal who sets a new Games record of 200kg from her lifts.

Canada’s Tali Darsigny takes the bronze with 196kg as Northern Ireland’s Hannah Crymble finishes in sixth.

Gold medal – Wales – James Ball

Gold for James Ball! And gold for Wales!!

The nation’s first gold of the 2022 Games.

Ball punches the air in delight as pilot Matt Rotherham hoists a Y Ddraig Goch flag over his head.

Sure there are celebrations from Cardiff to Conwy at that Welsh success.
