India's Abhinav Bindra and Gagan Narang won the 10m air rifle pairs to secure the host nation's first gold medal of the Commonwealth Games in Delhi.

The pair, who won gold in Melbourne in 2006, scored 1193 points to beat their Games record and spark a media scrum.

Anisa Syyed and Rahee Sarnobat won India's second gold in the women's 25m pistol pairs in a new Games record.
