"That was impressive from the Australians. The rest of the field couldn't live with them. I was impressed with how long South Africa managed to hang in there and give the Aussies a run for their money. A brilliant anchor leg from Cameron McEvoy."

"Chris Walker-Hebborn was a bit of a temperamental kid I remember.

"He'd often throw his goggles down when he was angry and stuff like that. His talent was never in doubt, though, and it's great to see him on the podium collecting a gold medal."

Rebecca Adlington

Four-time Olympic medallist and BBC Sport swimming expert

"It's been a better night for the home nations than anyone expected. Scotland have done well but it's great to get a couple of medals for England too.

"I think there is a lot to be encouraged about with British swimming after London 2012 and the World Championships where we struggled overall. It's nice to see the swimmers up there on the podium ahead of Rio and with so many new faces coming through."

Swimming

Women's 100m butterfly

England's Siobhan-Marie O'Connor after winning a silver medal in the women's 100m butterfly: "It's gutting to come second by such a small margin. I knew it was going to be a close race, but I'm really happy with a silver."

Swimming

Men's 100m backstroke

England's Chris Walker-Hebborn tells BBC Sport after his 100m backstroke gold medal: "I'm over the moon and speechless. I had a few things up my sleeve this evening and I was pumped. It helps when you see your squad doing so well and I'm buzzing."

Gold Medal

Katerine Savard (Canada) - women's 100m butterfly swimming

It was so nearly two gold medals for England in 10 minutes in the pool. Siobhan O'Connor led at the halfway point of the women's 100m butterfly, but is pipped just metres from the wall as Canada's Katerine Savard comes through to take the victory by five one-hundredths.

O'Connor now has three silvers from the 2014 Commonwealth Games. Double gold medallist Emma McKeon of Australia has to settle for a bronze this time.

Teenager Siobhan O'Connor, from Bath, Somerset, has already claimed two silver medals in Glasgow - in the 200m freestyle and 4 x 100m freestyle relay - and will be hoping it is third time lucky in tonight's 100m butterfly final.

O'Connor, 18, was one of the nominees for the 2012 BBC Young Sports Personality of the Year Award.

The 20-year-old won the women's 200m freestyle, was in the 4x100m freestyle gold-medal winning quartet and is in the 100m butterfly final. Her brother David, 21, has also won a silver in the men's 400m freestyle.

Make that two gold medals for England. Chris Walker-Hebborn smashes the Commonwealth Games record to take the victory in the 100m backstroke. We mentioned Liam Tancock earlier, and he now has eight Commonwealth Games medals. He finishes tied third.

Australia's Mitch Larkin wins silver, while countryman Josh Beaver gets a share of bronze.

Swimming

Men's 100m backstroke final

Our next action is the men's 100m backstroke final. Australia have won half of the gold medals available in the pool so far, with five successes in 10 races. They have won a total of 12 medals at the Tollcross Swimming Centre, including four silvers and three bronze medals.

Scotland have won five medals, including three golds, while Ben Proud's victory in the 50m butterfly is England's only success so far.

Boxing

Neil Johnston

BBC Sport in Glasgow

"Take that! Northern Ireland's Steven Donnelly requires just 37 seconds to see off Pakistan's Hasan Asif in their welterweight (69 kg) bout.

"What a mismatch. Donnelly has his opponent on his back on the canvas in the opening 15 seconds and the referee stops the contest after Asif is caught again.

"It's fair to say it's been a decent day for Northern Ireland in the ring after Michael Conlan fought on with a nasty cut to beat Nauru's Mathew Martin and advance in the men's bantamweight (56kg)."

Trinidad and Tobago were beaten 16-0 by South Africa in the women's hockey yesterday. They have done better today... just. They conceded just 14 goals as they fell to another defeat to New Zealand. Ouch.

Netball

England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland have all been in action in the netball. England recorded a huge 65-25 win over Wales in Pool B, while Scotland were 58-30 winners against Saint Lucia in Pool A. Northern Ireland have just finished their Pool A match with Jamaica and fell to a 65-34 defeat.

Medal Ceremony

Men's 400m individual medley swimming

Daniel Wallace, 21, points to a cheering public as he stands on the top of the podium. He has been so calm up to now. But seeing the Scotland flag rising and the crowd singing 'Flower of Scotland' brings a lump to his throat and a tear to his eye.

I'm sure he is not the only Scot crying at the moment. Emotional scenes, but memorable ones, in the pool. Wallace's success is Scotland's third swimming gold medal of this Commonwealth Games and their fifth medal overall in the pool.

Men's 100m backstroke final (21:03 BST)

England's Liam Tancock, who hails from Exeter, is aiming for an incredible eighth Commonwealth Games medal tonight when he swims in the men's 100m backstroke final (21.03 BST).

He is also aiming for his third successive Commonwealth victory in this event after claiming golds in Melbourne in 2006 and Delhi four years later.

Team-mate Chris Walker-Hebborn has also qualified for the final, as has Scotland's Craig McNally.

What a Commonwealth Games this is for Scotland. Daniel Wallace takes gold in the pool in the men's 400m individual medley.

He was well behind with 50m remaining but, with the home fans screaming their support, Wallace burst through to touch first. He screams out in delight and smashes both arms into the water in an emotional celebration.

Australia's Thomas Fraser-Holmes, a gold medallist in the 200m freestyle, finishes second, with Sebastien Rousseau of South Africa third.

Champion's emotional tribute

Judo gold medallist Megan Fletcher, a geography teacher in Bristol, broke down as she paid tribute to her late former coach Don Werner, who passed away earlier this year from cancer.

She said: "Everything I do now, he taught me, so I will always be grateful to him, and hopefully he would be proud."

The 24-year-old was cheered on by younger brother Ben, whose knee injury robbed him of the chance of competing at the Games.

She added: "I saw Ben after the semi-final and we had a little bit of an emotional moment. It was so disappointing for us as a family to be so close to coming here and Ben could have won it, but he is such a strong-minded person that I know in the future he will be one to watch."

Swimming

Para-sport 100m freestyle

England's Steph Slater will be bidding for a first Commonwealth medal in this evening's Para-sport 100m freestyle final but the road to Glasgow has been less than straightforward for the Preston swimmer.

She was a talented able-bodied swimmer before suffering pain and numbness in her arm during a training session, later diagnosed as damage to the lower part of her brachial plexus - the network of nerves that conducts signals from the spine to the shoulder, arm, and hand.

It meant she was unable to use her arm again and now swims using just her right arm.
