Joe Fraser wins gold despite BROKEN FOOT as England secure men’s team tournament at Commonwealth Games

JOE FRASER heroically fought through a BROKEN FOOT to help England win a record consecutive men’s team gold.

The Birmingham-born 23-year-old Turner also had emergency surgery five weeks ago after rupturing his appendix before injuring his foot last two weeks.

Jake Jarman, James Hall, Courtney Tulloch and Giarnni Regini-Moran also played a big part as England became the first team in history to win three consecutive gold medals.

England boasted the highest score on all apparatus, with Canada winning silver and Cyprus making history with a first bronze history.

Fraser couldn’t compete in all six apparatus but did the nation proud of the four he appeared in while being roared at by his home fans.

England led for the first two rounds before making a huge mark with a scintillating show on the rings.

Fraser slid through his performance to grab a stunning 14,450 score ahead of Courtney Tulloch’s massive 14,700 show.

The hosts flew with glittering performances at vault, with Regini-Moran leading the score while Jarman and Hall were also trumps.

England dominated from start to finish, finishing with a big score of 254,550.

Alex Yee delivered the promised golden start – and then vowed to establish the same triathlon legacy as the Brownlee brothers.

The London Yee delighted home fans – who flanked almost every inch of the course at Sutton Coldfield – by donning New Zealand’s Hayden Wilde and claiming the first Commonwealth Games gold medal.

The stage was an excellent example of controlled running.

The 24-year-old from Lewisham called his win a “fairy tale”.

And bumbling Commonwealth bosses allowed England’s Sophie Unwin to race for a bronze medal – even though there was none.

Visually impaired cyclist Unwin, 28, and pilot Georgia Holt beat Scotland’s Libby Clegg to secure third place in the women’s tandem B sprint at the London Velodrome.

However, the bosses of the Commonwealth Games Federation award gold and silver only after realizing their own rules and do not award bronze if only four teams compete in the event.

Unwin was in tears when told there would be no gong. In protest, the pair stood behind the podium for the medal ceremony before being moved by security.
