    Women's 4x100m relay

    Some great news for Wales. Their women's team will compete in tomorrow's 4x100m relay final after initially being disqualified (see 21:31). The Welsh quartet of Hannah Brier, Mica Moore, Hannah Thomas and Rachel Johncock demanded a video review - now they're back in. Their time of 44:66 also equalled the national record.

    Sally Pearson

    Australia's 100m hurdles champion Sally Pearson: "It is disappointing that my races finish in utter relief rather than happiness. To not hear my heart beat anymore is a really nice feeling. It is such a proud moment for myself and I had issues to deal with.

    "I just need to win, it is more than wanting to win. It is so important to us, it is hard. It is harder than for the soccer players, there is no-one to hide behind, you have to run on your own."

    Headguards will be back - Barnes

    Paddy Barnes

    Meanwhile, Belfast boxer Paddy Barnes believes the sport's world governing body will vote to bring back headguards after a Commonwealth Games marred by a series of high-profile cuts.

    Barnes breezed into his second consecutive light-flyweight final with a unanimous decision win over Uganda's Fazil Kaggwa.

    But earlier in the day he watched his friend Michael Conlan scrape through against Welshman Sean McGoldrick on a technical decision after sustaining a bad cut over his right eye from an accidental headbutt.

    And Northern Ireland lightweight Joe Fitzpatrick also required treatment to a gash beneath his left eye after a straightforward win over Michael Alexander of Trinidad.

    Barnes said: "I think headguards will be back. It's great to see them off because it's better to watch, but it's impossible to fight so many times in so few days without headguards on - it's ridiculous."

  8. Boxing

    Twelve home nations boxers will fight for a gold medal in Saturday's finals.

    England will have six shots at gold when the boxing moves to the 11,000 capacity Hydro Arena, Northern Ireland four and Scotland two. Five Welsh boxers lost at the semi-finals stage.

    Men's triple jump

    Former World and Commonwealth champion Phillips Idowu on his return to international action: "I wasn't sure how it would go tonight. I hadn't jumped for a month or more but it was comfortable and I am looking forward to the final tomorrow.

    "Hopefully I can execute it and stand on top of the podium like I have had many times before."

    Idowu qualified second with a jump of 16.70m - 5cms behind Nigeria's Tosin Oke. England's Nathan Fox and Nathan Douglas also qualified for the final which takes place at 19.10 BST on Saturday.

  12. Badminton

    Men's doubles quarter-finals

    Chris Adcock and Andy Ellis

    Top seeds Chris Adcock and Andy Ellis survived a huge scare at the hands of an unheralded Welsh pair to keep their challenge alive.

    The English duo faced elimination as they fell 14-12 behind in the deciding third game against Daniel Font and Oliver Gwilt, ranked 165 in the world.

    They eventually scraped through after a run of six successive points but their performance throughout a 17-21 21-16 21-15 win was a nervy one.

    Asked if they had rattled the English, Font said: "Yes, big time. Andy Ellis was nervous. We thought we were going to get spanked - they are the top seeds - and we thought we had them at 14-12."

  13. Athletics

    Women's 100m hurdles

    Sally Pearson on the suspension of Australia athletics coach Eric Hollingsworth, who recently criticised the Commonwealth champion of "setting a bad example" to her team-mates.

    "He lost his job for what he said in the papers trying to justify himself," she tells BBC Sport. "But I only did this for myself and the people who are supporting me."

  14. Athletics

    Women's 100m hurdles

    Two-time Commonwealth champion Sally Pearson after retaining her crown: "This medal means so much. It has been a really hard year having been injured and going into the World Championships with a new coach.

    "But I knew tougher people than me have got through this and come out the other side. For me it was about focusing on what I could control both beforehand and in the race and I came out the victor."

  15. Boxing

    Men's middleweight semi-finals

    Anthony Fowler

    England will have six boxers in Saturday's finals after Anthony Fowler clinched a middleweight showdown with Indian superstar Vijender.

    Fowler was too strong for Zambian opponent Benny Muziyo, decking his opponent after a series of shots towards the end of round one, and easing home a conclusive points winner.

    The pair could hardly be more contrasting with Vijender - who beat Northern Ireland's Connor Coyle - regarded as a superstar back home, where he has appeared in Bollywood movies and reality TV dance shows.

    Fowler said: "I'm a fighter and tomorrow won't be a reality show, it will be the real thing. I've been watching him for weeks and I know exactly what he's going to bring tomorrow."

    Michael Johnson picks his highlight of the night and tells BBC One: "I did enjoy seeing Sally Pearson going out there and defending her Commonwealth championship after everything she has gone through this week."

    Australia athletic coach Eric Hollingsworth was suspended by his country's Commonwealth Games Association after criticising Pearson's preparation.

    "Sally Pearson is a female sprinter who has excellent leg speed. She gets out of the blocks very well and then her pick up is strong and powerful. You want to get to that first hurdle as quickly as possible and put all the pressure on everyone else. Because Sally has this really explosive start it makes a huge difference."

    Sally Pearson

    What a performance! Sally Pearson shrugs off that pre-race bother as she tears over the fences to finish in 12.67. England's Tiffany Porter closes as she leaps over the sixth barrier, only for Pearson to find another gear. Silver for Porter, who clocks 12.80.

  22. Athletics

    Women's 100m hurdles

    And not only that, there's also the women's 100m hurdles to sample. Australia's Sally Pearson is the Olympic and defending Commonwealth champion and eased to a semi-final win last night, despite a controversial build-up. England's Tiffany Porter aiming to beat her.

    On Lynsey Sharp winning 800m silver: "Sometimes you don't want to keep talking about your injuries because it plays on your mind. Lynsey showed her strength of mind and willpower and it's a classic case of triumph over adversity.

    "I am sure there were tears of relief, joy and gratitude to her team and you can see how much she wanted this performance to put the months of disappointment behind her."

  24. Medal ceremony

    Usain Bolt might have left the building but you won't spot an empty blue seat inside Hampden yet. That's because an emotional Lynsey Sharp is picking up her Commonwealth silver medal.

    Scott Fitzgerald (right)

    Powerful Preston welterweight Scott Fitzgerald books his place in the final with a commanding display against Tulani Mbenge of South Africa.

    Fitzgerald, who will face Mandeep Jangra of India for gold, said: "I have only been on the Great Britain squad since January and this is my first real competition, so just being here is unreal - never mind being in the final."

    Jangra, who likes to emulate Sylvester Stallone's training scenes from Rocky for inspiration, defeated Northern Ireland's Steven Donnelly in the other semi-final.

    Usain Bolt

    Usain Bolt after leading Jamaica into the 4x100m final despite an injury to one of his team-mates:

    "I looked round and thought something was wrong. I was kind of worried but Kimmari Roach got the baton round and that is sign of a true champion. My coach always taught us to run with pain.

    "My week has been good and the people have been extra nice. I have been taking lots of pictures and heard I got some cops in trouble.

    "I would never say that the Games are rubbish. When I come to the games, I always look forward to it. I was never worried about the reception tonight. I am all about the fans and for me this was dream. I am happy."

    Usain Bolt

    Usain Bolt is dragged off to the trackside to face the media - and he goes on the charm offensive. He praises Glasgow (apart from the weather), criticises the Times journalist who says he slagged off the Games and then signs off with a tongue-in-cheek rant at BBC Sport's Gabby Logan. Apparently Bolt heard the television presenter saying the Games was better without him and team-mate Yohan Blake. A laughing Logan quickly denies it!

    What a showman. And his sprinting isn't bad either. Any doubts about the reception Usain Bolt would receive have been well and truly forgotten.

    It is confirmed - England are fine. Wales, however, are not. They have been disqualified for a dodgy changeover between Mica Moore and Hannah Thomas. Massive shame for the Welsh because they would have reached the final in a new national record time. Big shame.

    "At the Athens Olympics in 2004, we messed up the changeover but the judges were generous and we made it through to the final."

    "But there was no way after going through everything I have been through I was not going to get a medal today.

    "He's just not get enough to hold off Kipsiro who is getting stronger with every stride to hold onto his title. When he think about I think he will be happy with a bronze but all he can see now is that it was snatched away in the last ten metres."

    Canadian Levins - a training partner of double Olympic champion Mo Farah - was pipped in the final strides by Moses Kipsiro of Uganda and Kenya's Josphat Bett in a dramatic finish to the 10,000m.

Moses Kipsiro skips around the track in delight, finding his family which includes a woman shrieking very loudly. And why not!

    And, by the way, there was a smaller margin between gold and silver in the 10,000m final (0.03 sec Kipsiro to Bett) than in 100m final (0.10 sec Bailey-Cole to Gemili). Stunning.

    "Adding Commonwealth gold to the silver he won in Delhi and bronze as a young shaver in Melbourne will make it all worthwhile - and, since he is sharing a room here in Glasgow with long jump champion Greg Rutherford, makes that the most successful set of twin divans in the camp."

    Moses Kipsiro (Uganda) - men's 10,000m

    Moses Kipsiro

    Blockbuster finish! Canada's Cameron Levins surges around the bend with no-one in front of him, as the Scottish crowd cheer him to victory. But the sounds of Kenyan and Ugandan feet get louder. And louder. Reigning champion Moses Kipsiro edges past first to defend his crown, just a size 10 ahead of Kenyan Josphat Bett. Wonderful stuff.

    Four laps to go in the 10,000m - this is where the calves start to burn. I'd imagine. Kenya's Peter Kirui leads, like he has for the past 3,000m, but I'm not sure he will be there in a few laps time. He's there to be dragged back by the waiting pack.

    Steve Lewis (England) - men's pole vault

    Steve Lewis

    Finally! Steve Lewis looks like the most relieved man on the planet as he sails over that pesky bar. The 28-year-old becomes the first Englishman to win a Commonwealth gold in the pole vault. He shares a hugs with silver medallist Luke Cutts before legging it across the track - almost colliding with the 10,000m runners - to his family in the crowd.

  82. Athletics

    Men's pole vault

    The orange bar wobbles in the Glasgow wind as goes down to 5.55m. Both Luke Cutts and Steve Lewis cleared this height at the first time earlier. Now?

    And then there were two. It's a straight shootout for gold between English pair Luke Cutts and Steve Lewis. Both ease over 5.55m but then hit a metaphorical brick wall at 5.60m. Cutts fails all three attempts, leaving Smith with a clean shot at gold. He crashes into the bar with his feet - meaning it is jump-off time.

    Tom Daley and James Denny

    The new England pairing of Tom Daley and James Denny took silver in their first competition together, producing a superb last dive to get within 0.18 of Australians Domonic Bedggood and Matthew Mitcham.

    Tom Daley told BBC One: "We didn't know what to expect. We only started training for the first time last Friday and have only had three sessions, so I am really happy with the way it went.

    "For the last dive I said give it everything because anything can happen. We managed to do it and James did a great job.

    "Considering we went to nearly 400 points with just one good dive I think we will go into the European Championships and enter the synchronised. With a bit more training under out belts we could go quite far."

    Jax Thoirs

    Scottish record holder Jax Thoirs is sniffing a piece of the medal pie. He thunders down the runway with 44,000 Scots shouting him over a bar set at 5.55. Thoirs climbs high, screws up his legs and...almost clears it. He scrapes the plastic, it wobbles dangerously and then crashes behind him to the waiting mat. That's a fourth-placed finish for the 21-year-old.

  96. Gold Medal

    Jonathan Ndiku (Kenya) - Men's 3,000m steeplechase

    Smash! There's another Games record broken. Jonathan Ndiku was probably the least fancied Kenyan, but he has done his talking on the track. Ndiku wins in 8:10.44, ahead of team-mates Jairus Birech and the great Ezekiel Kemboi.

    England's James Wilkinson finishes a credible fifth.

    But wait. Daley and Denny nail one and get 95.46 points to put the pressure on. The fans were screaming the moment Daley and Denny hit the water. The divers absolutely nailed their front 4.5 somersault - their most difficult routine - at the moment they simply had to deliver. This will make things interesting...

  99. Diving

    Men's 10m Synchronised Platform final

    Daley and Denny

    The lack of training time is beginning to show for the new England pair who look unlikely to medal with just one dive left.

    These are tough dives though as all of the pairings illustrate with a lack of consistency. The gold is Malaysia's to lose.

    Kenya's Ezekiel Kemboi is what you call a "big-game player". The reigning Olympic and world champion has been there, done it and got the gold medals. His team-mates Jairus Kipchoge Birech and Jonathan Ndiku are expected to challenge him - don't be surprised to see a Kenyan 1-2-3.

    Dani Samuels (Australia) - women's discus

    2009 world champion Dani Samuels was hot favourite for gold - and the 26-year-old duly obliges. Perhaps more surprisingly is the name down in third. That's England's Jade Lally, who produces a seasonal best of 60.48m to take bronze.

    Leon Taylor

    BBC Sport diving expert & CWG silver medallist

    "The synchronisation was all right but then they both emptied the pool. It was a double surfboard moment."

    The third dive of Daley and Denny doesn't quite go according to plan with an untidy entry. The English pair do move up to third though after round three. Australia lead at half-way.

    "To be fair, most of the boxing judging has been pretty decent so far but there was some iffy stuff in the women's middleweight semi-final between Wales's Lauren Price and Canada's Ariane Fortin - one judge gave Price the second round 10-8, meaning she supposedly dominated. Another gave it to Fortin, probably correctly. Fortin did enough in the end, however."

  108. Athletics

    Men's pole vault

    We're moving closer to the business end of the men's pole vault competition. England's Luke Cutts took a job loading lorries at a Next warehouse in Yorkshire when he quit the sport in 2012. But now he is back and looks in great shape. He coasts over 5.45m, just after Scotland's Jax Thoirs fails at the same height. Favourite Steve Lewis of England passes at this height as he sets the bar - no pun intended - higher.

  109. Diving

    Men's 10m Synchronised Platform final

    Nick Hope

    BBC Sport in Glasgow

    "Looking at the dives Tom Daley and James Denny have to come later in their routine there is every reason to be optimistic. Their 'degree-of-difficulty' is much higher than that being performed by the 10m opponents - so if they can deliver them well, there will be no stopping them claiming gold. Big 'if' though for the new pairing."

    His victory follows Alex Marshall, Paul Foster, David Peacock and Neil Spiers' triumph earlier in the day after the home nation beat England in the fours final.

    The Scots had waited eight years for a Commonwealth gold medal before Marshall and Foster won the pairs event on Monday but Burnett's victory after 19 ends means they close out Glasgow 2014 with three - their best result since 1994.

    St Lucia's Levern Spencer, who won bronze at Delhi 2010, fails in her second attempt at 1.96m - which means England's Isobel Pooley takes silver. The new Commonwealth champion is 18-year-old Australian Eleanor Patterson.

    Australian Maddison Keeney had been leading but stalled on the board ahead of her fourth jump and had to restart. Two points deducted for that and she's down to fifth.

    "I was impressed with Charlie Grice. He did nothing wrong. He's a young athlete with a bright future. And Chris Gowell ran a very good race to come through."

    Englishman Grice and Gowell of Wales both book their places in the final of the 1,500m. Grice finished heat two in second in 3:40:09 and Gowell fourth in 3:40:30.

    Jayne Nisbet

    Scotland's Jayne Nisbit covers her streaky eyes with her hands as she fails to hold back the tears. And that, unfortunately, means one thing - she is out of the high jump final. She fails once, twice, no three times, at 1.82m. The 26-year-old crouches next to the barriers to be consoled by her coach.

    Women's 1m Springboard Final

    Two rounds gone and Australian Esther Qin, who led in qualifying this morning, is continuing her fine form as she leads with a score of 112.50.

    England's Hannah Starling leads the home challenge in fourth with a score of 109.10, while Scotland's Grace Reid - causing lots of whooping among the crowd - is sixth.

    Rebecca Gallantree and Alicia Blagg are bottom of the pile at the moment but there's still time to get back in it.

    Kenya's Ronald Kwemoi goes for broke ahead of the bend and then sticks his foot down to accelerate clear. He wins heat two in 3:39.90, with a pair of British hopefuls Charlie Grice of England and Wales' Chris Gowell also qualifying in second and fourth.

    "There are two ways of approaching competition - head down, 'game-face' on or head up and soaking it all in. England's 19-year-old Hannah Starling is definitely the latter, an infectious smile that certainly brings the crowd on side. She is someway down the standings at the moment though, but team-mate Rebecca Gallantree - who won 3m synchro gold with Alicia Blagg yesterday - is better placed."

    Men's 1500m first round

    Scotland's Chris O'Hare - a 2013 World Championship finalist - qualifies for the Commonwealth showpiece in fourth place in a time of 3:43:08.

    He tells BBC Two: "I knew when we went through the first lap it would be a case of having to be in top four and just staying smooth.

    "I didn't feel that great at the bell but I'm happy with that and happy to be in the final."

    Parallel bars champion Nile Wilson, who now has a haul of four medals, on BBC Radio 5 live: "It felt amazing and I wouldn't even have dreamt of coming home with this amount of medals. I am one of the happiest 18 year olds alive. The high-bar was good and to finish with a gold was the icing on the cake.

    "This whole experience has been unreal and the whole multi-sport village has been amazing. Now I am ready to go out and celebrate.

    Silver medallist and fellow Englishman Kristian Thomas: "It is amazing when you put it into perspective. The performance of the British gymnasts shows the future bodes well"

    England's Maddie Hinch

    'Geek' Maddie Hinch reaped the rewards of her extensive homework as she starred in England's penalty shoot-out win over New Zealand to clinch a final place against Australia on Saturday.

    The 25-year-old goalkeeper saved two attempts to seal a 3-1 victory after the game ended 1-1. She said: "In hockey we tend to do all right with penalties, so we had a bit of confidence going into it. It's a case of the girls putting the goals in as well, so the fact they took them gave me some help as well.

    "I'm renowned for being a bit of geek when it comes to these things. I had done a lot of homework before, so I knew what they would probably resort to doing under pressure. I felt ready and it was just a case of going out and executing."

    The Caribbean paradise of St Lucia is renowned for golden beaches, not golden medals. Tonight, that could all change. Levern Spencer is tipped to become her nation's first Commonwealth champion as she contests the women's high jump. No-one in the field has jumped higher this year, but UK champion Isobel Pooley of England and Scottish hope Jayne Nisbet are aiming to challenge her.

    Men's 1500m first round

    Two black vest of New Zealand - belonging to Nick Willis and Zane Robertson - set the pace. The bell dings and Scotland's Chris O'Hare makes his move. The home favourite is helped round the back straight by the famed Hampden roar and he runs superbly to finish in a tightly-bunched top four. Job done by the Scot.

    Team-mate Jake Wightman, whose parents both competed in Commonwealths of years gone by, finishes eighth.
