The two Commonwealth powerhouses continued their dominance over the rest of the field on a day in which three of the four finals consisted of bouts between Indian and Canadian grapplers.

It was India who drew first blood when Babita Kumari defeated Brittanee Avedure of Canada 7-2 in the women's under 55kg category, before compatriot Dutt engineered an even more comprehensive triumph over Jevon Balfour.

The Indian, a London 2012 Olympic bronze medallist who only returned to competition in June, earned two falls and two technical falls to secure victory by a 10 point margin.

Following his victory, he wrapped himself in an Indian flag and leapt into the crowd to greet an increasingly vocal contingent of Indian fans, all clearly thoroughly enjoying proceedings.

But as they have throughout the competition, Canada were not going to lie down quietly and quickly avenged these losses with two wins of their own.

First, Danielle Lappage used a pair of late takedowns to seal her first Commonwealth Games title with a 7-0 victory over Geetika Jakhar in the under 63kg category, before team mate Tamerlan Tagziev won the final match of the tournament.

He fought back from a 4-0 deficit to win 14-4 by technical superiority against Nigeria's Andrew Dick in the under 85 kg division.

That was enough for Canada to put themselves on seven gold medals for the competition ahead of India's five, while Nigeria were the only other nation to claim gold, which they did on two occasions.

Seven other nations secured medals on the mat, consisting of England, Cameroon, Wales, Pakistan, South Africa, Scotland and New Zealand.

The loudest cheers of the afternoon came when Scotland's Alex Gladkov secured under 63kg bronze after a bitterly fought 11-10 victory over Sri Lanka's Chamara Perera in a bout that left both wrestlers visibly exhausted.

Gladkov, the 28-year old who was born in Ukraine but now lives and trains here in Glasgow, dedicated his bronze medal victory to his grandad, who was forced to leave his home in Lugansk as a result of the continued conflict and instability in the east of the country.
