Commonwealth Games 2018, Gold Coast: Complete list of medal winners from India

TV Host Blasts Comm Games Closing Ceremony Live On Air

In a larger sense, the Commonwealth Games are only a stepping stone.

However, the closing ceremony will forever go down as a shocking error of judgement, putting a dampener on a successful 12 days of competition.

"The athlete's didn't really know what was happening. Again, we got that wrong", he wrote.

Toby Findlay said watching Indigenous band Yothu Yindi was "fantastic", but he left early because "the last bit wasn't great".

Several viewers took to Twitter to point out the common theme among performers closing the Games - they were all mostly former Australian Idol contestants.

"We can't let anything distract from that".

Nigeria's Quadri Aruna plays a shot during the men's singles semi-final table tennis match against India's Sharath Achanta at the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games at the Oxenford Studios venue in Gold Coast on April 14, 2018.

"But we made a mistake.that was clearly a stuff-up". Should [athletes] have been a part of the actual ceremony that was broadcast? We definitely should. But we shouldn't get carried away. "I can't be more honest about it than that", Mr Beattie said on Sunrise.

"I'm sorry you're being way too polite", she told Zempilas. "It was such an awesome feeling".

On a hot Gold Coast night, those in attendance were treated to a duet by Amy Shark and Archie Roach, a "poetry slam rap" and performances from the likes of Ricki-Lee Coulter, Anthony Callea, Yothu Yindi and Guy Sebastian.

"There are no athletes in here and I've never seen a stadium so empty halfway through a ceremony".

"The organising committee together with the host broadcasters just didn't get it right".

An estimated 1.58 million people tuned into Seven's broadcast of the closing ceremony, down from the mammoth 2.7 million who tuned in for the opening event.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has congratulated India's contingent of the 2018 Commonwealth Games (CWG). They became the first team apart from Australia and New Zealand to win netball gold.
