Alex 'Tattie' Marshall has become Scotland's most successful Commonwealth Games athlete by claiming gold in Australia.

Marshall and teammates Derek Oliver, Ronald Duncan and Paul Foster beat Australia 15-13 in a dramatic finale to take gold in the lawn bowls men's fours.

He now has five gold medals - more than any other Scot in Commonwealth Games history.

The host nation led 13-11 in the final end but the Scots fought back to pick up four shots that secured victory.

Diver Grace Reid added a second gold of the day for Scotland when she won the 1m springboard.

Meanwhile, Claire Johnstone and Lesley Doig have won bronze in the bowls women's pairs by beating Canada 18-10.

Elsewhere on day nine, Seonaid McIntosh won her second shooting medal of the Gold Coast Games.

The 22-year-old from Edinburgh secured bronze in the women's 50m 3 rifle positions event.

Boxer Reece McFadden emulated his Glasgow 2014 bronze after he lost out in a split decision to Northern Ireland's Brendan Irvine in their 52kg semi-final bout.

John Docherty has also claimed boxing bronze in the men's 75kg semi-finals.

The six medals increases the Scots' record overseas Games medal haul to 41.

Scotland's previous best was 29 at Melbourne 2006.

The nation's highest ever medal tally came in Glasgow four years ago when the Scots took home 53 medals.
