Commonwealth Games: Josh Taylor survived a torrid final round to win a second gold medal for Scotland in the men’s light-welterweight category.

Taylor’s clever, back-foot boxing helped keep Namibia’s Junias Jonas at bay for the first half of the contest but his opponent was to prove no pushover.

Taylor’s cleaner work proved decisive but Jonas still succeeded in drawing the Scotsman into a fight and doggedly pursued him round the ring in the final round.

But there was no doubt Taylor deserved to win all three rounds on all the judges’ cards, bringing the first finals session to an end in style.
