JASON COOK has promised to cut out his clowning during the remainder of the Games. The Maesteg featherweight tried his own Muhammad Ali routine on the way to a 15-0 victory over Francis Passingan of Papua New Guinea.

The Welsh boxer faces Daniel Attah, of Nigeria, in the next round and said: 'I've been doing the Ali bit for a couple of years now, but I don't intend to do it against the Nigerian. He's too cagy.'

In the diving, Canada won four of the six medals on offer on Saturday with a victory for Jason Napper on the springboard and a clean sweep in the women's 10-metre platform. However, the Australians complained about the scores needed to win medals being displayed during the final round, saying they could have influenced the judges.
