In the women’s 100m, Jamaica’s Elaine Thompson-Herah finished strongly to claim victory.
The two-time Olympic champion had company for the first 50m but accelerated away to pip Saint Lucia’s Julien Alfred to the line.
England’s Daryll Neita came third, but had she repeated her semi-final time would have won gold.

"It’s nice to get a medal on home soil," Neita told the BBC.
"I really didn’t put the best race together and that just makes me want to get back to work right now. It’s great to get a medal at the Commonwealth Games and I ran a PB in the semi-finals, so I’m in fantastic shape, but I need to perform better in these finals.
"I am racing the fastest women that have ever existed, it’s an honour and encouraging, it’s a really great atmosphere to be a part of."
Thompson-Herah added: "Feeling good, I didn't have the best execution but nevertheless I had to dig for that one but I am still grateful to win my first Commonwealth Games title."
The women's and men's 200m finals take place on Saturday evening.
