Gold medalists Libby Clegg of Scotland and her guide Mikail Huggins

Scotland's Libby Clegg has won gold in the T12 100m at the Commonwealth Games - the host nation's first in athletics at Glasgow 2014.

Clegg, who finished second at the Paralympics in London, romped home with a season's best time of 12.20 seconds.

The visually-impaired 24-year-old and her guide Mikail Huggins were roared home by a passionate crowd at Hampden.

"The crowd and atmosphere have been brilliant and to win gold is amazing," she said.

Clegg added: "It is a bit daunting when everyone wants you to win, but I didn't feel the pressure too much."
