There was heartbreak for Nigerian Blessing Okagbare as her team could only claim silver behind the powerful Jamaican quartet of Kerron Stewart, Veronica Campbell-Brown, Schillonie Calvert and double Olympic 100m champion Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce in the women's 4x100m relay.

Okagbare had already claimed the sprint double at Hampden Park and was seeking a golden treble.

But she and her team-mates were outgunned by Jamaica, victorious in a new Games record of 41.83sec.

Despite having Christine Ohuruogu, the current world 400m champion and former Olympic and Commonwealth gold medallist, in their quartet, England could only claim bronze in the women's 4x400m relay won by comfortably by Jamaica from Nigeria.

"We were confident coming in, but we couldn't take anything for granted," said Jamaican second leg Novlene Williams-Mills, a silver medallist in the individual 400m in a cleansweep by the Caribbean island. "The Nigerian girls did a great job, but we ran a great race."
