Boxer Luke McCormack has been presented with his medal at the Commonwealth Games.

The 22-year-old from Washington had to settle for bronze after a split decision in his semi-final against Namibia’s Jonas Jonas in the light welterweight competition in Australia yesterday.

The medal ceremony took place early this morning, just hours before his twin brother Pat won gold in the final of the welterweight competition.

Pat said he wanted to get gold for his brother.
