Baton journey begins in India

Mark Beaumont reports from the route as the Queen's Baton Relay makes its first international stop in India on the 288-day adventure around the Commonwealth.

The Glasgow 2014 Queen's Baton Relay has begun its journey around the Commonwealth.

Adventurer Mark Beaumont is travelling with the baton, which contains the Queen's handwritten message to the Commonwealth, as it visits all 70 competing nations and territories.

He witnessed the celebrations upon its arrival in New Delhi on the first stop of the journey, and discovers why an ancient form of wrestling has been India's key to Commonwealth Games success.
