New Zealand's most successful Commonwealth Games have been capped with one final gold medal.

Joelle King and Amanda Landers-Murphy have triumphed over England's Sarah-Jane Perry and Alison Waters, winning New Zealand's 20th gold medal in Birmingham.

That number eclipsed the previous record of 17, set 32 years ago in Auckland, while the final total of 49 medals surpassed every previous edition of the event held overseas.

King's victory is also historic on an individual level, seeing her become only the second Kiwi after athletics great Valerie Young to win five Commonwealth Games gold medals.

The success came after the eight-time medallist teamed with Paul Coll to pick up her fourth gold in the mixed doubles final only 16 hours earlier at the University of Birmingham.
