England gymnastics team
The quartet of Smith, Thomas, Wilson and Whitlock covered for Sam Oldham's injury to win gold.

England survived injury to Sam Oldham to stroll to gymnastics team gold at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

Oldham buckled on his left ankle upon landing his dismount on vault and had to leave the arena on a wheelchair.

But the remaining England team of Max Whitlock, Louis Smith, Kristian Thomas and Nile Wilson were unperturbed and held onto their overnight position at the top of the leaderboard and roared to gold ahead of hosts Scotland.

The Scots team of Adam Cox, Daniel Keatings, Frank Baines, Daniel Purvis and Liam Davie won the nations first ever gymnastics team silver while Canada took bronze at The Hydro.

Speaking on Oldham's injury, Smith - who was forced into a routine on parallel bars to cover for the youngster, said: "That's what you've got to overcome, you've got to pull together.

"We had to keep Nile, the youngster coming into this, fresh and we had to keep spirits up and we had to do it for Sam.

"It's been such a brilliant competition, I knew it would be [after coming out of retirement]. I get the buzz, I left the sport I came back. I loved being around the boys and the banter with the Scottish boys so it's been a real experience."
