THESE were the emotional scenes after English star Emmanuel Oyinbo-Coker raced to Commonwealth gold.
The 20-year-old romped to a career best of 10.94 as he took home the gold medal in the T33/34 men’s 100m at Birmingham.
He enjoyed a fast start to the race and held an advantage early on from compatriot Ola Abidogun, who finished with bronze.
Jaydon Page came through for silver in 11.10, but the Aussie was no match for the fantastic Oyinbo-Coker.
And he instantly raced to celebrate his triumph with his family in the crowd at the finish.
The ace was spotted hugging his loved ones, before a touching moment saw him cuddling his younger brother, who was unable to stop his tears of joy.
