Victoria Pendleton and Anna Mears

Pendleton, a two-time Olympic champion and multiple world champion who retired after the London Olympics, earlier spoke to BBC 5 live about her old rivalry with Meares.

"We didn't really talk that much while we were competing, to be honest. I didn't really know her that well. But we had very similar experiences and were in each other's lives quite a lot," she said.

"When we were on the boards I desperately wanted to beat her. We had a lot of medal races against each other and it was an intense rivalry. But my husband Scott Gardner used to work with the Australian Institute of Sport and he always says we were very similar in lots of ways.

"I think Anna is more physically gifted than me in terms of what the sprint requires."

And then there was one.

In the only remaining action on day four of the Commonwealth Games, England lead Malaysia 4-1 thanks, in a large part, to a hat-trick from Ashley Jackson.

Jackson's successfully converted three penalty corners and an excellent finish from Adam Dixon, which survived an umpire's referral, have given England control with 15 minutes to go.

Scotland - Men's 4x200m freestyle relay final

What a swim from the Scotland quartet. They changed all their swimmers from the heats this morning and are rewarded with a silver medal. Australia take gold, with South Africa third.

It took a new Games record of 7:07.38 to beat them. That is how you relay. Take a bow Daniel Wallace, Stephen Milne, Duncan Scott and Robbie Renwick.

Scottish cyclist Chris Pritchard climbed straight off his bike after this afternoon's keirin run-off to climb into the stands and propose to his partner Amanda.

"I have been plotting this for about five or six months. It has taken a lot of hard work, " said Chris.

"I thought, 'she is going to say yes' so I just put that away and I just thought about what was going on in the keirin. It was a really good keirin, I really enjoyed it."

"It was never in doubt," added Amanda.

"I have been nagging for long enough. The ring is just like the one I took a picture of and left on the computer screen!"
