Jack Laugher claimed his second gold of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games in combining with Chris Mears to win men's synchronised three-metres springboard title on Friday.

Laugher, the one-metre springboard individual champion on Wednesday, and Mears finished with a total of 431.94 to triumph at Edinburgh's Royal Commonwealth Pool.

Australia's Matthew Mitcham and Grant Nel - on the podium alongside Laugher on the opening day of diving competition - took silver with 403.14.

A second English pair reached the podium as Nick Robinson-Baker and Freddie Woodward claimed bronze with 364.41.

"The Commonwealth Games have been an absolute dream for me," Laugher said. "I was hoping, if I could get lucky, to come away with three medals.

"To come away with two golds and a silver is absolutely fantastic.

"To do the last one with my best mate and to get that alongside each other is what we've been dreaming of all year."

Meanwhile, Nicola Adams is one fight away from making more women's boxing history after cruising into the final of the flyweight competition.

Adams served up a classy display to comprehensively outpoint Mandy Bujold of Canada and is one win away from being crowned the Games' first women's boxing champion.

Adams will take on Northern Ireland's Michaela Walsh, who edged a tight and absorbing contest against India's Pinki Jangra, at the 10,000 capacity Hydro Arena on Saturday.

Joe Joyce is guaranteed at least a silver medal after being given a walkover into the men's super-heavyweight final.

England's Kristian Thomas has claimed silver in the men's vault final on the final day of gymnastics action at the SSE Hydro.

Canada's Scott Morgan won gold with a total of 14.733, with a silver medal-winning score of 14.499 enough for Thomas while Singapore's Wah Toon Hoe took bronze with 14.195.

England bowlers Jamie-Lea Winch and Natalie Melmore suffered a 20-17 defeat in the women's pairs final against South Africa.
