Australia's Emma McKeon has broken the record for the most Commonwealth Games medals ever with 19 medals in total.

McKeon won her sixth medal of Birmingham 2022 with a bronze in the women's 100m freestyle to move level with South African Le Clos and shooters Michael Gault and Phil Adams on 18 medals.

She then stepped up as part of Australia's mixed 4x100m medley relay team which stormed to gold - giving her a seventh medal of the Games and a fifth gold.

The 28-year-old McKeon now has five gold, a silver and a bronze from these Games storming past Le Clos to set the new record tally - a haul she began with six medals at Glasgow 2014.
