Sharp won't compete at the Glasgow International on 24 January

Team Scotland returns to the track in Glasgow in the new year, without Commonwealth Games silver medallist Lynsey Sharp.

The 800m runner has told BBC Scotland she is not planning to compete indoors.

Team Scotland will compete against Team GB, Germany and France at Glasgow's Emirates Arena in the annual event, on Saturday, 24 January.

It is only the second time in 20 years of the Glasgow International that Scotland will have competed as a team.

Last year, Team Scotland used the event as part of their preparations for the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

One of the highlights was Sharp receiving her 2012 European 800m gold medal from her father, Cameron, in an emotional medal ceremony.
