Commonwealth Games: England stun Australia to win men`s 4x100m medley gold

Glasgow: England inflicted Australia`s first relay defeat at the Commonwealth Games for eight years as they claimed gold in the men`s 4x100m freestyle relay on Tuesday.

The team of Chris Walker-Hebborn, Adam Peaty, Adam Barrett and Adam Brown came home in a Games record time of 3min 31:51sec to claim England`s 10th gold medal of the meet.

World 100m freestyle champion James Magnussen very nearly dug Australia out of trouble with a sensational final leg, but they came up just short and had to settle for 19 golds and a record tally of 57 medals from the Games.

And Chad le Clos claimed his seventh medal of the meet as South Africa won bronze.
