Durban was officially anointed host of the 2022 Commonwealth Games on Wednesday, making it the first African city to ever stage the sporting spectacular.

"A historic decision for all of us and one that my commission completely endorses," newly-elected Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF) president Louise Martin told the organisation's general assembly in Auckland.

South Africa's third largest city was the only candidate in the vote for 2022 hosting rights after Canada's Edmonton withdrew in February, citing cost concerns.
