Brunel University athlete Ashley Bryant took to Twitter to celebrate after winning silver in the decathlon at the Commonwealth Games on Tuesday night.

The Arsenal fan sealed two fine days of competition to take second spot after a fine performance in the final two events at Hampden Park.

Bryant produced a javelin of 66.24m and a time of 4:38.24 1500m for a total of 8,109 points to secure his own debut international medal.

And the 23-year-old celebrated by writing on Twitter: "I've actually done it! Silver at the Commonwealth Games!!!!!! Wooooooooo.

 

He also changed his profile picture, which now shows himself on the podium receiving his medal.

Damian Warner scored 8,282 points to win gold, with Grenada's Kurt Felix taking bronze.

Bryant is the third west London athlete to win a medal in Glasgow following Ashley McKenzie and Nekoda Davis, who both picked up gold in judo.
