The wave of admiration and awe that transformed perceptions of people with disabilities was one of the uplifting successes of the Commonwealth Games because there was a genuinely inclusive vibe on the Gold Coast.

Helen Housby, whose score sealed their first victory in a major final, said afterwards on Instagram: "The best day of my life".

Andy has become one of Britain's top endurance runners and qualified in stunning fashion for the Games at last year's London Marathon and finished 11 minutes ahead of fellow Welshman Josh Griffiths, who was an early pacemaker. "Love this team and I love this game #GC2018 #TeamAndCountry #willneverstopcrying #HISTORY".

"It's a blur. I just remember having the ball in my hands and then running away screaming", Housby said.

The 27-year-old said: "I'm lost for words and that is really rare". I've dreamed of this for a long time.

In on, she wrote: "The best day of my life". England took the final centre pass and as the clock showed five seconds to go, England's Jo Harten, 29, missed a shot at goal.

"She came forward strong, I didn't think she landed the cleaner shots", Robertson said.

Unbackable favourites before the match, Australia were outscored 16-13 in the final quarter as England produced their second thrilling victory in as many days after needing until the final seconds to get past Jamaica in the semi-finals.

Australia head coach Lisa Alexander was forced into four changes at the break and moved goal shooter Caitlin Bassett to the bench after she was dominated by England goal keeper Geva Mentor, playing in her fifth Games.
