Sarah Clark won Commonwealth Games gold for Scotland in the under-63kg division when she beat Helene Wezeu Dombeu of Cameroon.

The 36-year-old Clark – a former European champion who won silver when judo was last in the Commonwealth Games at Manchester 2002 showed no mercy as she quickly delivered victory with an armlock submission to claim a third judo gold for Scotland following the Renicks sisters’ success at the SECC venue on Thursday.

England teenager Katie-Jemima Yeats-Brown secured a bronze medal when she beat Canadian Beatrice Valois Fortier, the defeated semi-finalist, with a 25-second hold-down ippon score. Essex judoka Faith Pitman quickly followed suit after a waza-ari throw beat Australian Katharina Haecker.
