Glasgow: World 100m freestyle champion James Magnussen added the Commonwealth Games title to his collection by edging out fellow Australian Cameron McEvoy in a time of 48:11 seconds on Sunday.
Tommaso D'Orsogna claimed bronze to make it an all-Australian podium. McEvoy had surprisingly beaten Magnussen at the Australian trials in April and the man nicknamed "The Missile" said he planned to let his rival make the early pace before surging to victory in the final 25 metres.

"Obviously it wasn't the quickest time I've done in recent times, but I wasn't really focused on times tonight," said Magnussen.
