The Olympic champion and Strictly Come Dancing star had warned his rivals he was like a cornered lion ready to “bite” back and duly claimed the only major gold medal missing from his vast collection after touching the wall first in 26.76 seconds.

He said: “I’m a much happier man. I had two options this morning, I either fight or I don’t.

"If anyone knows me, I fight. That means so much. I lost my spark at the start of the week and to have it back now, this is what it’s about.

“That was the only one I hadn’t won in my career, the Commonwealth 50. So I can retire now. No, no, but I’m very happy with my progress there.”
