  1. Post update

    That is over and out for now though on a jam-packed day of Commonwealth fun.

    Thanks for your company and sweet dreams.

  2. Tuesday's action

    There could be another podium rendition of Flower of Scotland tomorrow in the pool as Hannah Miley takes on Wales' Jazz Carlin in the 400m freestyle final.

    Elsewhere the men's team gymnastics looks interesting with Great Britain team-mates Kristian Thomas, Sam Oldham and Max Whitlock, and Dan Purvis and Daniel Keatings, divided along England and Scotland lines respectively.

    In shooting, Northern Irish full bore specialist David Calvert returns to the Commonwealth Games for a 10th time as part of the team for Glasgow, having won four gold and four bronze medals since his debut at the Edmonton Games of 1978.

    Your handy guide to Tuesday is right here.

  3. Medal table

    What does that all mean for the medals table? Well, those pesky Aussies are still top, but today's tip of the hat goes to Scotland in third.

    Thirteen gold medals, the latest of which were Libby Clegg's T12 100m success and victory for Alex Marshall and Paul Foster in the men's pairs, is a national record for the Commonwealth Games.

    Medal table
  4. Today's action

    Time for your bullet-train review of what happened in today's action.

    In athletics, England's Adam Gemili took silver behind Jamaica's Kemar Bailey-Cole in the 100m, while Nigeria's Blessing Okagbare completed the first half of a possible sprint double in the women's race.

    In swimming, Jazz Carlin became the first Welsh woman to win Commonwealth Games gold in the pool in 40 years when she eased to victory in the 800m freestyle.

    In squash, defending champion Nick Matthew saw off the challenge of compatriot James Willstrop to retain his title in a five-game epic.

  5. Boxing

    Barry McGuigan

    BBC Sport boxing expert, on Radio 5 live

    "Nicola showed her class and ability. She overwhelmed Oluwantoyin Oladeji, who was probably saved by the bell in the end. It was first class and I think she will be too good for anyone else here."

  6. Boxing

    Nicola Adams

    Nicola Adams finishes like a train, buzzing around a weary Oluwatoyin Oladeji like an irate hornet, throwing stinging shots at the struggling Nigerian. A clear victory and the Englishwoman is all grins as she salutes each side of the ring with shadow punches.

    An impressive and, by the looks of it, enjoyable opening.

  7. #71club updates

    Ollie Williams

    BBC Sport in Glasgow

    Number 36 - Clemenca Sionehelo - Niue Island

    Clemencia Sioneholo represents Niue Island, one of the smallest nations in the Commonwealth Games, in the #71club.

    "We're a small nation, but if you come to our land, we have a big heart. You'll have fun," says the shooter of home, which is 1,500 miles north-east of New Zealand.

    She adds that back home, islanders sometimes use the local flying fox population for target practice - eating the proceeds. "It's a delicacy."

    Ollie is attempting to interview a competitor from all 71 nations and territories by the end of the Games. He also grabbed Canada's Susan Nattrass - one of the most decorated shooters at the event - today. His tally is up to 37, and he's targeting 10 more in athletics and boxing on Tuesday.

  8. Boxing

    Barry McGuigan

    BBC Sport boxing expert, on Radio 5 live

    "Nicola looks very relaxed, very comfortable and is showcasing her talents. That's three rounds out of three now."

  9. Boxing

    Nicola Adams's quality shines through. The Yorkshirewoman snaps her opponent's head back with a heavy left hand flush on the chin. Round three is marked down to her by all of the judges.

  10. Boxing

    Nicola Adams is in perpetual motion, dodging, ducking and constantly readjusting the space between the fighters to her advantage.

    While Oluwatoyin Oladeji's shots come in singles, Adams is stringing together slick combinations and that is enough to bag up the second round on all three cards.

  11. Boxing

    Barry McGuigan

    BBC Sport boxing expert, on Radio 5 live

    "Nicola's coaches in the corner were very happy with the second round. She's dominating this and don't be surprised if the Nigerian girl gets a count this round. Very impressive from Nicola so far."

  12. Boxing

    Barry McGuigan

    BBC Sport boxing expert, on Radio 5 live

    "Safe to say Nicola Adams won that first round. She's just warming up and getting her timing right. She will be more and more in control of this fight because she's too good for this girl."

  13. Boxing

    A cagey opening round with Oluwantoyin Oladeji refusing to make it easy for Nicola Adams by blundering in blindly.

    Adams did manage to get through with more quality though, a jab as fast a viper strike and a strong right hand over the top convince all three judges that the round is her's.

  14. Boxing

    They have waited a long time, but the SECC fans get their reward.

    England's Olympic flyweight champion Nicola Adams is led to the ring to the strains of Blur's Song Two. She waves a gloved fist to acknowledge the support, before upper-cutting thin air.

    Her opponent is Nigeria's Oluwantoyin Oladeji. Ding-ding, seconds out.

    Time to taste the leather.

    What has Nicola Adams been up to since she became the first ever Olympic boxing champion at London 2012?

    Well, she hasn't stopped smiling. And she has not got all showbiz on us.

    "Winning at London 2012 helped me work out the people who are real - my friends and family - and the people who are fake," she said.

    "Don't get me wrong, there are times when it's really cool being treated special. But mostly I just like being what I was.

    "I'm still Nicola Adams from Yorkshire, I still walk my dog in the same field I always have done."

    Women's 100m final

    England sprinter Asha Philip

    England's Asha Philip tells BBC Sport after finishing fourth in the women's 100m final: "Fourth is always the first loser as people say, but I'm so proud of myself. I wanted a medal but it's my first Commonwealth Games and I've loved the experience. I am going to take it on the chin and there's more to come from me."

  23. Athletics

    "The times will come, the medals are what counts" said Adam Gemili after his 100m silver.

    Unfortunately for team-mate Asha Phillips, a personal best time was only good enough for fourth in the women's 100m.

    Donovan Bailey, former Olympic 100m champion on BBC 5 live

    "One of the things I love about Adam Gemili is his total relaxation. He has an amazing start. His first 30m is among the best you can get. He knows Kemar Bailey-Cole is bigger and faster than him, so he puts him on his heels. He took complete advantage tonight of what he has, and he will learn and get better."

  26. Athletics

    Adam Gemili

    England's Adam Gemili tells BBC Sport after his 100m silver medal: "This is my first senior medal. I'm speechless. There's so much prepration that goes into running 10 seconds - my team put a lot of work in behind the scenes. I can't believe it, this is my first time representing England and I'm so happy.

    "This is something I'm never going to forget. It's not about times today, it's positions because the times will come. Medals are what count and this is a stepping stone now for the Europeans, Worlds and then Rio in 2016."

  27. Athletics

    "This young man has come onto the British sprinting scene and sucked it up. He has shown he has what it takes. It is about consistency - can you keep backing up those times? And yep, Adam Gemili - you are the man. Now he has got a medal, he will be feared."

  28. Post update

    England's Adam Gemili is giddy with joy, gabbling at 100mph in his post-race interview. He looks like he will float out of the stadium tonight.

    "The times will come, the medals are what counts," he says with a wide grin before sending his good wishes for Eid straight down the barrel of the camera.

    Adam Gemili

    "Adam Gemili did exactly what he should have done which was put pressure on Kemar Bailey-Cole straight from the start, but Bailey-Cole's long strides took over. It's a huge landmark for Adam to run well in the qualifying rounds at a major event and get a medal in the final."

    Kemar Bailey-Cole came arrowing through the centre of the field from the halfway point. A clear winner, but the eye was drawn to the battle behind him where a stooping Adam Gemili snatched second for England.

    Kemar Bailey-Cole is the man outside Adam Gemili. He trains with Usain Bolt, can he deliver like the big man?

I executed it and stayed patient like my coach said I should and after 70 metres it just felt easy! I still have the 200m and the long jump and I'm looking forward to both of those events now."

  40. Athletics

    Blessing Okagbare

    Having only relatively recently turned her sights to sprinting and with only 25 years on the clock, this might be a sight that we get increasingly accustomed to. Blessing Okagbare will also go in the 200m and you would be a very brave punter to bet against her bagging the sprint double.

    There was only one winner from 70m.

    Veronica Campbell-Brown made up some of the ground after Blessing Okagbare's fast start but saw the Nigerian stretch away from her as she hit full stride.

    A winning time of 10.85 seconds is a new Games record.

    Right, down to women's 100m final business.

    Veronica Campbell-Brown of Jamaica plays it a little cooler, blowing a kiss to the crowd as her name is announced.

    England's Bianca Williams, 20, will be picking up experience rather than medals. Compatriot Asha Phillip, in lane eight, would be a shock medallist.

    Australia's Lorna Tonks is second and Jamaica's Alia Atkinson, who was leading for so long before fading badly, is forced to settle for bronze.

    Women's 400m semi-finals

    Jamaica's Novlene Williams-Mills and Botswana's defending champion Amantle Montsho are all but holding hands as they cross the line in glorious isolation to take up the first two qualifying spots.

    Williams-Mills takes it in 50.73 seconds with Montsho just behind in 50.96 looking like she had plenty of gas in the tank.

    Neither has gone as quick as Stephanie McPherson though who won the first heat in a rapid 50.69 seconds.

    O'Dayne Richards (Jamaica) - Men's shot put

    O'Dayne Richards

    Jamaica's first athletics gold comes in the hefty shape of O'Dayne Richards rather than from any of the lithe sprinters.

    His winning throw of 21.61m is a new Games record. Tom Walsh of New Zealand is second with Tim Nedow of Canada taking bronze.

    Women's 400m semi-finals

    Jamaica's Christine Day, part of her country's bronze-medal winning relay team in London 2012, is some way off her personal best from the national trials, but 51.02 is more than good enough to secure a final spot.

    She strolls off, apparently having barely raised a pulse, while the Bahamas' Shaunae Miller comes home second. England's Shana Cox is well down in fifth.
