    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.

    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."

    Kirani James of Grenada

    Marks. Set. Go! After the gun pierces the chilly Glasgow air, Kirani James runs a conservative 200m before kicking into gear round the bend. For a moment it looks like Wayde van Niekerk of South Africa could pip him down the straight. No. James finds another burst to cross in 44.24, smashing a new Games record in the process.

    England 400m runner Martyn Rooney

    "England's Martyn Rooney has shown a great attitude and looks in great form. He came through the preliminary and the semi-finals with good performances. However, I don't think he can beat Kirani James unless the Grenadian makes a big mistake.

    "I like Martyn's beard as well! It suits him and I think it goes with his attitude. Could the beard slow him down?! I don't think so. Ed Moses had a beard for a while and it didn't affect him!"

    "Kirani James in the 400m is the man to watch and he's a got a lane draw to suit him. When James lost to Lashawn Merritt at the World Championships he got out of his race because he was looking at Merritt. James runs his best when he runs his own race. With no contenders on the outside of him he will run his own race. It's his to lose."

    I know a six minute warning is a little unorthodox, but frankly I didn't have time to give you a 10 minute warning because of that flurry of medal action. have six minutes before the men's 400m final begins. Olympic champion Kirani James is a bigger dead cert than Red Rum in the 1974 Grand National.

    "The biggest cheer we have had all day is for England's Alicia Blagg and Rebecca Gallantree as they secure synchronised 3m springboard gold.

    "They can't believe it! Blagg saw the scoreboard and stood motionless then started pointing to her team-mate who couldn't see the scoreboard. When they both realised what they had just achieved they sprinted towards one another to celebrate."

    Derek Drouin (Canada) - men's high jump

    The men's high jump did not reach the heights exepected but I can tell you that one man does not care a single jolt. That is Canada's Derek Drouin. The Commonwealth record holder has a little piece of gold to add to Olympic and world bronzes after clearing 2.31m

    "What relief on Greg Rutherford's face and now a smile breaks out. He's now two titles away from having the full set. He could join an elite club of British athletes that hold every title in the world and that's a special achievement if he can do it. Only the likes of Sally Gunnell, Linford Christie and Daley Thompson have that. Well done Greg Rutherford."

  84. Gold Medal

    Greg Rutherford

    Only one man now can deny Greg Rutherford the gold medal as the long jump reaches its conclusion. South Africa's Zarck Visser needs 8.20m or further - no, he's well short! Rutherford, or the Ginger Wizard as he's known, collapses to his knees on the track in celebration.

    The Olympic champion is the new Commonwealth champion!

  85. Bronze Medal

    Jessica Taylor (England) - women's heptathlon 800m

    Move over Ennis-Hill and Johnson-Thompson. She might not have a double-barrelled surname, but England's Jessica Taylor looks to have a bronze Commonwealth medal. She finishes fifth in the 800m, with Canada's gold medallist Brianne Thiesen-Eaton fittingly dipping over the line first, to clinch third in the overall standings.

    Amazing scenes over in the pool as England's Alicia Blagg and Rebecca Gallantree produce something special in their final dive to snatch women's synchronised 3m springboard gold! They had not led in the previous four rounds but a 72.54 in round five puts them ahead of Canada as they finished on 300.24, just under 5.00 ahead.

    Both look stunned when they climb out of the water and who can blame them? Stunning finish.

  88. Athletics

    Women's heptathlon 800m

    British hopes in the women's heptathlon were pinned on Olympic champion Jessica Ennis-Hill. Then, she decided to have a baby instead (fair enough). So hopes switched to England colleague Katarina Johnson-Thompson. She had to pull out through injury.

    That leaves Canada's Brianne Thiesen-Eaton as the champion elect. She basically needs to stroll around the track twice in a half-decent time to grab the gold. They're off.

    Like in yesterday's women's 10,000m, Kenya are celebrating another clean sweep of the medal podium. Purity Kirui holds off a late burst from team-mate Milcah Cheywa to take gold in a time of 9:30.96. Joan Kipkemoi finishes third, about 11 seconds ahead of Eilish McColgan who finishes an excellent sixth after a season of health problems.

    Men's high jump final

    England's Christopher Baker was an outside bet for a Glasgow medal, despite jumping a career-high 2.27m in June. He is within a whisker of grabbing a bronze, but fails to top that figure to take third. He takes out the bar on each of his three attempts at 2.28m, which means he must settle for fourth. No shame in that though.

    "'I'm calm now'," says Mears. 'To be fair the other guys were great it just would have been brilliant to be up there with them and Jack my best mate'."

    But what are the chances of Scotland's McColgan stealing their thunder? McColgan?! No you haven't slipped into a time machine back to the 1980s. The biggest home hope is Eilish McColgan - daughter of the legendary Liz, who won the 10,000m at the 1986 Games in Edinburgh.
