England archers Nicky Hunt, Danielle Brown and Nichola Simpson won gold in the women's team compound event, beating Canada 232-229 in the final.

They were one point behind after two of the four ends but world number one Hunt's 10-point final arrow clinched victory at the Yamuna Sports Complex.

The trio are the first English archers to win gold medals at a Commonwealth Games for 28 years.

Brown also won a Paralympics gold in Beijing two years ago.

England had earlier beaten Malaysia 226-221 in their semi-final.
