Sian Honnor skipped England to gold in the women's triples with a 22-4 victory over Australia.

Honnor, from Worthing, Ellen Falkner and Sophie Tolchard proved too strong for their rivals as they powered ahead from the first end in the lawn bowls gold medal match.

The English trio accelerated into an 11-0 lead after three of 18 ends and led 20-1 after 10 ends before completing a 22-4 victory over Australia's Lynsey Clarke, Karen Murphy and Kelsey Cottrell.

The match came to a conclusion after 15 ends, with Australia conceding to the 'mercy' rule as the contest came to a premature end.
