01 August 2014 BBC Online


Max Whitlock and Claudia Fragapane both won their second Commonwealth Games gold in Glasgow as England dominated the all-around gymnastics finals.
Whitlock, 21, scored well on all six pieces of apparatus to win the men's final with a superb score of 90.631.
Fragapane, 16, produced a gold-winning score of 56.132 from her four rotations and Ruby Harrold and Hannah Whelan completed a podium clean sweep.
Nile Wilson won men's bronze while Scotland's Dan Keatings took silver.
Fragapane's gold came after England's women also won the team final.
Whitlock's closest challenger, Scotland's Dan Keatings, scored 88.298 to take silver.
It was the second time in consecutive days that Whitlock, from Hertfordshire, had broken the 90-point barrier after he also achieved the feat in Tuesday's team final, which doubled as all-round qualification.
Whitlock said: "I wasn't paying much attention to the scores. I wanted to have clean routines and to have that comfortable margin at the end felt really good.
