England's Max Whitlock won his third gold of the Commonwealth Games as he was crowned men's floor champion at the SSE Hydro on Thursday.

Whitlock claimed the title with a score of 15.533 after a near-faultless routine which was full of flair, finishing ahead of Canada's Scott Morgan who took silver with 15.133, while 14.550 gave New Zealand's David Bishop bronze.

The 21-year-old Englishman added the top floor accolade to Tuesday's team gold and Wednesday's all-around title, with finals on the pommel horse, rings and parallel bars still to come.

Bishop was first on the floor and tumbled well to set a strong early target, before Wales' Clinton Purnell moved into second place with a tally of 14.366.

England's Kristian Thomas missed out on the chance to add to the team gold he won on Tuesday as he bounced out of bounds with one of his opening tumbles, but the stage was then set for Whitlock who performed a dazzling twisting routine to take the lead.

Whitlock's routine was a cut above the rest, although Dan Keatings' crowd-pleasing performance looked to put him under pressure before it was awarded a lower score of 14.533.

That put Keatings into bronze medal position, but the medal was snatched from his grasp thanks to last gymnast Morgan, who took silver with a well-executed routine.

Alex Dowsett won a brilliant gold for England in the men's road time trial.

Dowsett, silver medallist four years ago in Delhi, came from behind to complete the 38.4-kilometre route, which began and finished at Glasgow Green, in 47 minutes and 41.78 seconds.

Australia's Rohan Dennis, who had led for much of the race, was second in 47mins 51.08secs, and Wales' Geraint Thomas third in 47:55.82.

Scotland's David Millar, the defending champion, was eighth in 49:56.23.

England's Emma Pooley, who is to retire after Sunday's road race, was second in the 29.6km women's event, six seconds behind winner Linda Villumsen of New Zealand, who clocked 42:25.46.
