Thomas wins road race

Welshman Geraint Thomas overcame the drama of a late puncture in treacherous conditions to win the men's road race at the Commonwealth Games on Sunday.

Thomas, who took bronze in the time trial on Wednesday, appeared to be cruising to victory before he came to a standstill with around six kilometres left of the 168-km slog through continual rain. Jack Bauer of New Zealand claimed silver, ahead of England's Scott Thwaites.
