  9. Badminton

    They've done it! England's number four seeds Gabby Adcock and Lauren Smith need just the one opportunity to make sure, winning 21-13 17-21 21-18 in one hour and 14 minutes. That was a classic and worthy of being a medal match.

    There are plenty of glum Scottish faces around the arena, none more so than the miserable expressions slapped across the chops of Imogen Bankier and Kirsty Gilmour. Even the Fratellis' feel-good anthem of Chelsea Dagger booming out cannot cheer them.

  10. Badminton

    But the Scots a plucky pair, nicking two points back, before Lauren Smith smashes a winner from the front to leave England with two more match points...

  11. Badminton

    There is a real grudge match taking place at the moment. Scotland pair Imogen Bankier and Kirsty Gilmour, unsurprisingly backed by huge vocal support, face England's Gabby Adcock and Lauren Smith.

    They drew one game each to take the match to a decider - and it's been a thriller. Now Adcock and Smith are two points away from a place in the last 16.

  12. Badminton

    Hundreds are packed into one Glasgow venue and ready to party as Wednesday comes to a close. No, they're not lurking around the dancefloor at legendary music venues Barrowlands or King Tut's. They're packed into the Emirates Arena as badminton becomes the new rock'n'roll....

    BBC Sport athletics expert on BBC Radio 5 live

    "Greg Rutherford proved his critics wrong this evening. 2013 was a rough year for him and he's come through and delivered. I think tonight he was as happy with his gold medal as he was at London 2012. He's running well, jumping well but is mentally in the right place which is the most important thing."

    Viorei Etko of Scotland with his silver medal

    Adopted Scot Viorel Etko says he is the proudest man in Glasgow after delivering the host nation's first wrestling Commonwealth Games medal in 20 years with bronze in the 61kgs.

    The 36-year-old was born in Moldova before leaving to pursue his athletic career first in Romania, then London in 1998, where he waited on tables and laboured on building sites before heading north of the border, eventually settling down to marry gymnast Laura Davies.

    He said: "I am probably the proudest parent here, because I have my nine-year-old son Leon watching. I wanted to give him and all the other little kids a gift, all who are future Scottish athletes.

    "I am fortunate to be the person who has done this. I thought I could make some history in Scottish wrestling."

    Hartlepool's Marshall earned a unanimous decision over Botswana's Pearl Morake and will fight Nigerian Olympian Edith Ogoke next.

The teenager wipes a few tears away before heading towards the bright lights of the TV cameras. What a final routine. Even to the untrained eye, it was clear it was something special."

    Australia's head coach has been suspended for publicly criticising Olympic 100m hurdles champion Sally Pearson.

    Eric Hollingsworth accused Pearson, who starts the defence of her Commonwealth title on Thursday, of setting a bad example to her Australian team-mates.

    He was upset with Pearson's decision to miss a pre-tournament training camp in Glasgow, favouring to race in London instead.

    Northern Ireland ensured they will take home an impressive nine boxing medals after late wins for Steven Donnelly and Connor Coyle.

    England captain Antony Fowler led the way into the middleweight semi-finals with a comfortable points win over Nickson Abaka, while Qais Ashfaq and Scott Fitzgerald also guaranteed medals.

    "It was good to get a comprehensive win in terms of scoreline but I am disappointed with the sheer volume of errors.

    "Saying that when you are playing against a lesser team you get more possession and you are more likely to make errors. However, we have to be more clinical. We need to ensure we are clinical across the 60 minutes."

    "Ear-splitting roars from the gymnastics crowd after Claudia Fragapane razzle-dazzles on the floor to win gold. Plenty of height, a touch of breakdancing and every landing nailed. She's lifted skywards by her team-mates because that performance has secured her gold. She's the Commonwealth all-around champion! Fragapane can't hold back the tears. It's an England 1-2-3 with Ruby Harrold winning silver and Hannah Whelan taking bronze."

    Claudia Fragapane finishes with a flourish, lands perfectly in her final acrobatic move, smiles wide - she knows she has done enough. Remarkable performance from the 16-year-old.

    She scores 14.733 to win gold with a total of 56.132, just ahead of Ruby Harrold (55.232) and Hannah Whelan (54.699). Tears of joy all round in the England camp.

    Women's individual all-around final

    England appear to be primed for a clean sweep of medals in the women's all-around final. Canada's Elllie Black goes into third behind England's Ruby Harrold and Hannah Whelan. Last up is their team-mate Claudia Fragapane - she needs a score of 13.833 on the floor to nick gold. Drama.
