Australia tops the chart with 72 gold medals. Her brother Jamie - who won bronze at the 1990 Auckland Games - died when he was 22 in a vehicle crash in 1994, a year before Skye was born.

"I have no words, I'm so excited right now, over the moon", she said.

Three of the five judges scored the fight in favour of Nicolson to leave Walsh furious. In front of her watching parents and a willing home crowd on Australia's Gold Coast, the 22-yearold Nicolson benefited from a debatable split-points decision in her featherweight final against the unfortunate Michaela Walsh of Northern Ireland.

This was India's 56 medal at the ongoing 2018 Games as they consolidated their third position in the medals tally.
