Commonwealth Games organisers have defended Camilla for looking jaded during Wednesday's opening ceremony at the Gold Coast, saying the Duchess of Cornwall was "shattered" from her travel schedule rather than disinterested in the show.

Australia slowly overpowered the English riders and flew home in three minutes 49.804 seconds - shaving almost half a second off the 3:50.265 record which Great Britain set in Rio two years ago.

The team of Shayna Jack, Bronte Campbell, Emma McKeon and Cate Campbell lowered the previous world record of 3:30.65 set by Australia at the 2016 Rio Olympics.

Less than 12 hours after breaking the world mark in the 4x100-meter freestyle relay, three of the four Australian women were back at the Gold Coast Aquatic Centre in morning heats for the 50-meter freestyle. Brianna Throssell took the bronze.

Team England had been hot on the Aussies' heels for the first half of the race but slipped down to third place in the third leg when Freya Anderson came up against Canada's Rebecca Smith.

Horton added a Commonwealth gold to his Olympic title, easily winning the 400 in 3:43.76, about 1.5 seconds ahead of Australian teammate Jack McLoughlin.

Woodward should be in contention for the finals at his first Commonwealth Games and from there anything is possible.

"I'm so proud of you and everything you've achieved", Wu said.

Gold medalist Cate Campbell of Australia, silver medalists Bronte Campbell of Australia and Taylor Ruck of Canada on the podium.

Pt.1 This past week I've had to make one of the hardest decisions of my career so far and I would like to firstly say thank you to medical professionals at SASI for being so diligent throughout this process because without them life could have be a lot worse. "I knew that this time it could have been me if I just swam the race a little bit better".
