The South African men's 4x100m relay team stormed to silver medal — and a new national record — at the Commonwealth Games.
Although England won gold with a time of 38.13, South Africa's time of 38.24 was the best by a South African 4x100m relay team ever.
Akaine Simbine and Henricho Bruintjies, who form part of the team, also won gold and silver respectively in their 100m race earlier in the week.
Emile Erasmus and Anaso Jobodwana completed the team. Jamaica grabbed bronze medal with a time of 38.35, Briefly.co.za learned.
According to sport24.co.za, South Africa's gold medal haul of 13 is the best since 2006. However, the total medal haul of 37 fell short of Glasgow 2014's 40.
