    Sir Bradley Wiggins' only Commonwealth Games event ended in silver rather than gold as the England team pursuit squad were well beaten by an impressive Australian quartet.

    Later, Wiggins said he would not ride the Tour de France again after telling the BBC that road racing is "cut-throat" with "no kind of loyalty".

    England trio Jason Kenny, Philip Hindes and Kian Emadi were beaten by New Zealand in the team sprint final, while Australian Anna Mears romped to 500m time-trial gold,

    The day began with the disappointing news that double Olympic champion Mo Farah had withdrawn from the Games to recover from a recent illness.

    "I really wanted to add the Commonwealth titles to my Olympic and World Championships, but the event is coming a few weeks too soon for me," he said.

    "My body is telling me it's not ready to race yet."

  9. Medal table

    You know that medal table at 22:21? Lies, pure lies.

    The Wales rhythmic gymnastic silver medal has not made it's way through the system, that is what we are saying anyway.

    This is the true state of affairs with all four of the home nations in the top 11. Lovely stuff.

  11. Badminton

    Scotland sent out a powerful message with two convincing wins on the opening day of the team competition. The host nation opened proceedings at the Emirates Arena by thrashing the Seychelles 5-0 and then hammering Guernsey by the same scoreline.

    Their dominant performance put them top of Group C alongside New Zealand, their next opponents on Friday, and on course for a place in the quarter-finals.

    Men's singles player Kieran Merrilees was among their most impressive performers, playing in both matches and spending a total of 41 minutes on court in winning 2-0 twice.

    "We wanted to come in strong and be ready for the tougher matches coming up," he said.

    "We were a bit frustrated with the performance. There were good bits, but we were a bit slack with some of our passing and attacking play. Having said that I thought Trinidad and Tobago played well, they frustrated us and had a good game plan. There were certainly glimpses of some quality play for us across the 70 minutes and we will look to take that into the game against Malaysia on Sunday."

    "The road is quite cut-throat really," said the 2012 Tour de France champion.

    "That is fantastic for success, but I'm not sure how enjoyable it is."

    He gives the distinct impression of a man who is done with politics and horse-trading of Grand Tours.

    I'm not sure if this is deliberate Glasgow 2014 innovation, but it seems that at Tollgate that the winners' families get a fast-track ticket to poolside after the medal ceremony.

  26. Medal Ceremony

    Men's 200m breaststroke

    Ross Murdoch takes a good long look at the golden gong hung around his neck. I'm still not sure that he believes that he is on the top step of the podium.

    The national anthem might be where he starts to realise. The crowd bellow Flower of Scotland, but the victor can't accompany them to the end. Murdoch is soon in tears and it is hard to sing when your bottom lip is juddering with emotion.

    The Renicks sisters looked frazzled and slightly taken aback by the attention they've received after their double gold success.

    "It's not sunk in for me because we've not had time to share it together," says Louise, winner of the -52kg final after her opponent was disqualified.

    Her younger sister Kimberley has had more time to gather her thoughts, winning the -48kg weight category an hour or so before her sister. "I had to quickly go to anti-doping so I had to watch her on TV. I ran down and the first time I saw her someone's trying to take a photo of us."

    Kimberley then teases her sister for conducting the crowd during part of the national anthem. "I saw her medal ceremony," she says. "I saw her getting the crowd involved. She took my showboating today - and people say I'm the poser!"

Michael Jamieson will be surprised as well, he's a guy who doesn't train to finish second. He looked shattered after."

    "I think he recognises that opportunity but it is a stacked event, there are couple of youngsters, you've got the Aussies who are looking really good and I don't know how you deal with that pressure. We passed four posters this morning on the road of Michael looking fantastic so everyone knows and they are hot tickets tonight for this 200m breaststroke final."

    Gold in the women's under-57kgs went to England's Nekoda Davis, who beat Scot Stephanie Inglis in the final.

    Davis, based at British Judo's Centre of Excellence in Walsall, scored a Waza-ari throw, which she followed up with a 25-seconds hold-down to clinch the title.

    There was, though, more home success for Scotland as Glasgow fighter Connie Ramsay, a defeated quarter-finalist earlier on Thursday, secured bronze when she pinned down Cameroon fighter Paule Sitcheping.

    "David McKeon lost that race rather than Ryan Cochrane winning it. The wheels just fell off for McKeon."

    Bronze for England's Guy

    There is a sneaky bronze medal for James Guy of England into the mix. Stuck out in lane seven, he came in under the radar to take third ahead of Mack Horton of Australia.

  80. Gold Medal

    Ryan Cochrane (Canada) - 400m freestyle swimming

    An extraordinary turnaround over the final length. Ryan Cochrane was 1.3 seconds down with 100m to go, a second down with 50m to go, but he zoomed past David McKeon as the lactic bit on the Australian.

  81. Swimming

    Australia's David McKeon turns for home with a comfortable lead. Surely it is enough to hold off Ryan Cochrane?

  82. Gold medal

    Louise Renicks (Scotland) - women's 52kg judo

    It is two gold medals for the Renicks sisters after Louise beats England's Kelly Edwards in the 52kg category. Earlier Kimberley Renicks had claimed Scotland's first gold in the 48kg category.

    Northern Ireland secured a first bronze medal of the Games as Lisa Kearney, who fights out of Edinburgh, beat Canada's Audree Francis-Methot.

    Hannah Miley (Scotland) - 400m individual medley

    Hannah Miley celebrates

    A stunning final 100m from Hannah Miley, who keeps enough in reserve to hoover up England's Aimee Willmott. The home crowd scream her all the way home. Scotland have the start they wanted on the Games' first evening in the pool.

    Four minutes 31.76 seconds is a new Games record.

  88. Swimming

    Hannah Miley goes clear!

  89. Swimming

    Aimee Willmott turns 0.92 seconds clear. One hundred metres of crawl to decide it.

  90. Swimming

    Halfway point and Aimee Willmott has put in a lot over the 100m of backstroke. She turns almost a whole second ahead of Hannah Miley and inside world record pace.

    But breaststroke is more to Miley's liking. And she is pegging her English rival back.

  91. Swimming

    Scotland's Hannah Miley emerges into a cauldron of noise. Aimee Willmott looks a little overwhelmed by the reception, waving meekly at the television camera.

    They hit the water to commence hostilities. Butterfly first up.

    Michelle Krupa: Swim in Tollcross regularly, amazing that its a Commonwealth venue! It looks brilliant! Will be bouncing.

    Jon Cook: It looks like we're in for a great night at the pool tonight, should be some cracking races. the atmosphere sounds electric.

  94. Swimming

    Hannah Miley won the 400m individual medley crown in Delhi four years ago, finishing well ahead of England's Aimee Willmott in fifth.

    Since then the gap between them has closed.

    Wilmott, now 21, has developed into a world-class swimmer and posted some swift times.

    Toss a coin. It is that sort of race.

    "I thought Hannah Miley just wanted to get the job done in her race this morning. She did what she had to do, eased off towards the end and saved her energy, because it's all about tonight."

  96. Swimming

    The swimming programme has been delayed slightly. The first final - the women's individual medley over 400m - featuring Hannah Miley of Scotland and Aimee Willmott of England - is due to hit the water about now.

    "It is a baking hot evening here in Tollcross. As swimming pools go this is simply scorching and I'm expecting the temperature to crank up a few notches in the next 90 minutes as home nation swimmers battle it out for the first medals in the pool of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.

    "The crowd is now finally filtering into the venue after delays entering the venue - they're excited and so they should be, an awesome night of action in prospect."

    #71club - number four (Vincent Onyango - Kenya)

    BBC Sport's Ollie Williams is attempting to interview an athlete from all 71 nations and territories participating in the Commonwealth Games to create the 71 Club (#71club).

    Vincent Onyango became a surprise, bonus member of the #71club when he was fished out early in this afternoon's men's triathlon.

    The Kenyan said he had never before raced in a major triathlon, only duathlons. He was picked out of the water when his attempt to breaststroke his way around the course failed.

    "I was hoping I could somehow survive on the swim. My freestyle is still worse than my breaststroke," said Vincent. "Swimming is something I need to work on."

    "Great head-to-head home nation prospects tonight - seven of the eight finalists in the men's 200m breaststroke all from England (three) Wales (one) or the hosts Scotland (three).

    "Ross Murdoch was the quickest qualifier but Michael Jamieson is the Olympic silver medallist and a big crowd favourite.

    "Women's 400m individual medley also of great interest, will it be Scotland's Hannah Miley or England's Aimee Willmott?

    "Miley set a new Games record in the heats, but a quick twitter pole put Wilmott on top."

    Ashley McKenzie

    That backstory that Ashley McKenzie alludes to is an interesting one.

    He went to a special school to help with his Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and suffered from a number of health problems, wearing a hearing aid, battling asthma, eczema and the after-effects of a heart operation at 18 months old.

    He was also in a few scrapes with the law as an adolescent before, in his own words, judo saved him.

    "The biggest race of my life"

    Scotland swimmer and 2012 Olympic silver medallist Michael Jamieson, speaking to BBC One ahead of the 200m breaststroke final at 21:01:

    "London is done and dusted and I have got great memories of that. This year I had the world record time on my alarm clock every morning - that is my target and I hope to get there this week.

    "Everything is done, now it's all psychological. I'm trying to stay as relaxed as possible and remember that I am here because I love my sport, but the nerves are starting to build. This is the biggest race of my life.

    Michael Jamieson

    "And this is at home, where things started. With all the support we have had I feel this is not just a goal for me but everybody who has lent their support in my development."

    England's Ashley McKenzie speaking to BBC Three after winning -60kg gold: "I'm just so chuffed all my hard work has paid off and hopefully I will be able to perform like that in major championships in the future. The technical problems were a little disruptive, but I kept my focus.

    "Everyone has their own story I guess that mine is a little more interesting than most, but I want to be a role model for those kids with problems. We've all got problems."

    "Tollcross venue staff make an apology to unhappy spectators whose arrival into the building has been delayed by queues at security.

    "However, when they arrive they're likely to want out again - this is genuinely the warmest indoor pool I have ever been in, beating the previous hottest of Ponds Forge in Sheffield.

    "Hopefully it won't bother the swimmers, but a few ex-swimmers are finding it tough..."

  110. Judo

    A hold-up in the crucial final stages of this match as the scoreboard is reset.

    Finally action is resumed and Navjot Chana comes out on the attack to try and land a winning move to snatch victory. McKenzie is content to just grapple, hold and defend. Seventeen seconds to go.

    Navjot Chana scores a waza-ari, worth seven points, but England's Ashley McKenzie responds in kind to keep his nose ahead on the scoreboard. A little less than a minute to go...

    Sir Bradley Wiggins:

    Sir Bradley Wiggins: "It's been a great break from the road and a good start for Rio. Four weeks ago we sat in a room for the first time in six years and wondered how far we can go.

    "We've had limited preparations for this and hopefully will look back in two years with gold medals around our necks thinking this was the starting point in Glasgow.

    "I've said all along the track was always what I was going to go back to. I need to put some muscle on and get stronger. It's going to be two years of graft and we can't underestimate how much work we have ahead to get in the right place for Rio."

  114. Judo

    Ashley McKenzie, who was the first Briton eliminated from London 2012, has the upper hand in this Commonwealth -60kg final. India's Navjot Chana has picked up three warnings from the official. One more mistake and he will be eliminated.

    It is cagey, tactical stuff.
