England’s Zharnel Hughes was dramatically denied a maiden gold medal as he was disqualified from the men’s 200m final at the Commonwealth Games.

The 22-year-old dipped just ahead of Jereem Richards but appeared to have impeded his Trinidad and Tobago rival and was judged to have run out of lane.

Team England’s appeal against his disqualification was rejected.

Scotland’s Eilidh Doyle won silver in the 400m hurdles, while England’s Kyle Langford did the same in the 800m.

England’s Dina Asher-Smith took bronze from a top-quality women’s 200m final.

The 22-year-old dipped ahead of double Olympic champion Elaine Thompson of Jamaica to take third by a hundredth of a second in 22.29 seconds in a race won by the Bahamas’ Shaunae Miller-Uibo.
