CWG 2018: India's golden moments at Gold Coast | Highlights

Saina Nehwal and PV Sindhu assure India of gold and silver medals

"A Games of innovation, inspiration, colour and vibrancy with an exuberant Gold Coast buzz - embracing us all with your warmth and friendship".

Commonwealth Games Canada (CGC) is the franchise holder for the Commonwealth Games and Commonwealth movement in Canada, and an active, contributing member of the Canadian sport community. "You've made us all very proud", he said.

"From its beginnings. the Games were always created to be more than just a sporting spectacle. We just need to boost the profile of the Paralympics and get that showcased around the world a bit more".

Australia still managed to lead the medal's table with 80 gold medals, and a total of 198 medals.

Indian boxers were in the limelight after winning several medals.

After the defeat to New Zealand, fans were hoping for an improved display in the bronze medal match against England - an opposition they had just gotten the better of.

Australia dominated in the swimming pool and in track cycling, while Jamaica felt the absence of the retired Bolt as they struggled in the sprint events.

Faith Obazuaye settled for silver in the women's para-table tennis. Deepika also took home a second silver medal after she and Joshna Chinappa qualified for the final of the women's doubles event.

South Africa's Olympic champion Caster Semenya also highlighted her versatility with a commanding 800m-1,500m double at Carrara Stadium.

But that didn't cut it for the media with a host of reporters turning on Commonwealth Games organisers following their dramatic failure.

Against England in the last group stage game, the Indians staged a truly incredible comeback as they scored twice in the last two minutes to overturn a one-goal deficit.

Both events were played in front of passionate packed houses, reflecting a Games where empty seats were few and far between and crowds were noisy and partisan.

After seven years of preparation and 11 days of competition, the final act of the Commonwealth Games fell flat on Sunday after viewers and host commentators slammed the closing ceremony for breaking tradition.

Athletes, punters and reporters alike were left confused and disappointed as athletes and the flag bearing ceremony was left out the broadcast. I had only a short 20min window to get a selection of images and this was the one that worked best with four players all contesting the ball after a rebound off the edge of the net. Participants and visitors also appreciated the handsome locale that is the Gold Coast - and the beaches, surf and sand did not disappoint.

Winners: Cyclist Elinor Barker produced a stunning performance to win points race gold, Hollie Arnold set a world record with her final throw to claim the F46 javelin title and Sammy Lee and Lauren Price won boxing golds.
